Far behind Charles Darwin in field-book writing? At least in interestingness!
I've produced regular field-books since 1977. Then as a twelve years old kid. My 30-35 field books scanned would had counted 9000 pages (4500 pages in 2 sides scan) . My golden Utsira Birding Years 1992-2007 would had involved 1600 scanned pages in my digital library!

Also produced field notes on plant-analysis on trips in Southern Norway and a field-notebook on moths/butterflies. There are not so many words in Darwin's pages as mine fieldbooks ;-) . E. g. Galapagos - field notes. But WOW, how interesting it is reeding Darwin's fieldnotes 125 years after his death.
Thanks for the interesting Darwin links in Norwegian Birdlife.
