Good Afternoon All.

I have just joined "surfbirds" and look forward to some gainfull exchange of knowledge.

I'm quite new to birding. I picked up an old camera last year and found myself trudging the countryside of the Island looking for anything that moves.

Being a city type, I did'nt know a sparrow from mallard but slowly I'm learning.

My nemisis at the moment is the common buzzard. I just can not get a quality shot of this bird. I hope that will change in the coming months.
3 days ago, one settled on a branch hanging over the road just 40 ft away from my nose. NO camera. Nearly crashed the car as the wife laughed til she hurt.
