A BRITISH schoolgirl has become the world’s youngest bird watcher to record 5,000 species.
Sixteen-year-old Mya-Rose Craig, from Compton Martin, Somerset, spotted her record-breaking five thousandth bird, a Rock Bunting, on holiday in Castillo Del Loarre, Northern Spain.
Mya-Rose who has recorded species in 38 countries and seven continents, has been birdwatching since she was four-year-old.
During her search, she has visited Australia, Egypt, and the Amazon.
Mya-Craig said: “I do not look at them as a listing, as I love watching and experiencing each bird. I’ve been very lucky as my parents got the bug for world birding when I was eight.
“I was just fascinated by the fact they had wings and could fly away. Since I was ten I’ve gone on birding trips abroad during the summer holidays.”
