on 14th January 2008

In July 2007, after two years of blogging, BESGroup’s blog logged 100,000 visitors. Now, exactly six months later, we have reached another milestone – 200,000 visitors.

A recent web-rating by an independent professional editor for weblog “blogged” rates this blog as ‘Very Good” and awarded it 8.3 out of 10.0 points (above). The editor used four criteria: 1. frequency of updates; 2. relevance of content; 3. site design; 4. writing style.

We have linked up with many overseas bird blogs. Many others have discovered us as shown below:


Based in the US, Birdfreak: The Bird Conservation Blog has been recommending us to birders all over the world (left). So have the Malaysia Bird Forum and

GlobalVoices, founded at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, has also made referenceto us. This is a research think-tank focused on the internet’s impact on society.

One of our posts was referenced in an article on the Common Myna that appeared in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia,

And a Chinese blog based in Biijing literally re-posted chunks of our recent postings, images and all. makes special mention to our recent post on the Chestnut-bellied Malkoha.

On the local scene, Youth.SG, an online portal for the youth of Singapore, has linked up with BESG. So has Singapore Environmental Blogs.

The above are the new local links. Apologies for not mentioning the many other local links, so as not to make this post excessively long.

Once again BESG thanks one and all for your support – photographers for sharing their bird behaviour images as well as permission to post their images, birders for sending their sightings and observations.

With your continued support, we await the coming of the half million hits.
