My patch is too small!

Bored at work so did some hi-tec fancy dan calculations using a BTO 2 km tetrad map, a sheet of acetate, a permanent marker, graph paper and a propelling pencil, oh and a calculator to work out the precise area of my patch, and guess what? its too wee! Yes indeedy, for our patch challenge, de patch must be less than 2 square km, but mine is waaaaaaay less - taking up an area of approximately 1.04 square km! Wonder if I expanded in a 100 m wide path, could I reach White's Marsh from here....

or am i doing something really stupid?

Indeed, and I am! Sorry, panic over, please move along, there's nothing to see here...2.11 square km is perfectly acceptable, ahem, arse!

  1. Nah mate, White's marsh is way too far away for you son. You'll be suggesting checking Roscarberry next, that's virtually another country. Besides you'd only see waders and ducks with the all the confusion and controversy they cause son. Stick to dodgy buntings in yer back yard.
