Bird Watching Magazine - Oct 2012 - Bird Journal version 3
“All in all, it builds on an already user-friendly piece of software and makes it even more so – regardless of whether you keep records for your own benefit or as part of a county or national scheme (and many of us probably do all three), it’s a huge help.”
BirdWatch Magazine - Apr 2011 - Bird Journal version 2
“Overall, this is a very easy-to-use program with a nice user interface. The graphs and customisable checklists are a great addition...”
Bird Watching Magazine - Aug 2010 - Bird Journal version 2
“Even if your birdwatching is strictly of the casual, stroll-in-the-country-and-take-some-bins type, there’s a lot of additional pleasure to be gained from keeping a decent record of what you see.”

"I've bought nearly all the Bird programmes and yours is the only one i've felt comfortable with from day one...your software earns top marks from me and the more i use it the more i like it."
"I like the simplicity of use. I like the clean, crisp, colourful and, perhaps most importantly, I really like the open feel of the “page” presented."
