Gulls is me.
Mainly because there are lots of them in the winter where I live in southwest Scotland,and its a long way from many rarities.To have a list of 400 here is far more difficult then for those in se England(jealous...yes).
Anyway I believe in going out and enjoying your local birds.Have a twitch if you want,but at the end of the day ,no matter how you bird enjoying it is the most important factor.
Been birding sice 1977/8.Spent many a holiday in East Anglia when younger,but haven,t been there in over 20 years.Scillies once.Official BOU list 348.
Go to Puerto Pollensa at least once a year for Mallorca birds.
Retired last December so more time for birding...hopefully.
Oh,and Pale Male is New York's famous Red-tailed Hawk that has its own website www.palemale.com
