    Default Hello from England

    Hello People

    I'm new to surfbirds and relatively new to 'birding'. I live in Nottinghamshire, England and about 5 miles from Attenborough Nature Reserve which I am treating as my local 'patch'. I recently attended a bird identification course there and started to make a list ... mostly of small green-brown birds as they disappeared into the undergrowth. I have just treated myself to a scope and am happily discovering the beauty of the drabbest looking birds. Lots to learn and enjoying every minute of it. GB

    Welcome to the forum. You have just joined a big family who will help your hobby grow. I will never forget the first time I used a telescope it was like another world. It can be a nusiance sometimes when carrying a scope around but I would have missed many birds had I not had it with me. A carry bg in a tree a mile away turned out to be a Red backed Shrike. Had I not been scanning fence posts on a marsh I would have missed a Hoopoe

    Please do not be afraid to ask anything you want.

    Good birding
