This is my first post - so please bear with me!
I have loved birds for what seems like hundreds of years - just as a friendly observer, but over the past 15 years I have taken up Watercolour Painting from time to time, and I find that I can paint birds quite well.
I also love Photography, and have taken many photographs, some quite good - but still am searching for that "perfect" shot!!
I live in Cumbria now, but divide my time between here and the South of France, where I have a second home. Excellent to be there, and see many different species of birds which are unusual in the Lake District.
I hope to learn a lot from this Site - looking forward to the future.
