Welcome! I've been photographing birds seriously since my retirement in July 2009. However birding and the birds come first. Favourite birds are waders, terns and warblers but gulls and birds of prey fascinate too! All time favourite bird: wood sandpiper - because it took me so long to get my first photographs of them. Bird I'd most like to see: cream-coloured courser
My current British bird list total is 431 [January 2017]. This year's 'lifers': white-billed diver; pine bunting
