Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching
Yes I'm a birdwatcher, I don't go in for making lists or twitching, but if I hear of something of interest locally I nip off to have a look, if i've time.

I live at Southport, in Lancashire(UK) on the Ribble Estuary & the big thing around here are the overwintering Pink Feet Geese, & Bewicks & Whooper Swans, it's pretty good for raptors as well.
A few weeks ago I had 5 Marsh Harriers 2 Ravens overflew my garden in the space of 5 mins. In the last couple of years we have had Peregrins nesting on the local gas holder.
I tend to carry my bins in the car & have a look see if we are away from home at a Festival or Morris Dance weekend. You never know what you may see.

Cheers
Les
