Introduction

I started birding in 1979 in college.
First trip was to Mount Pinos in California.
Seeing the beauty of California condors, and many other birds got me hooked.

Life put birds on hiatus for awhile, but have I returned with a vengence aka renewed energy.
Humbly ready to absorb all there is to offer.

I do the best with the equipment I have;
eventually I hope to improve the quality of my lenses.

Birding sites- the Green Sand Assessment.

Posted Tuesday 12th February 2019 at 21:44 by Green Sandpiper
Like a lot of us, I'm guessing, I'm a huge fan of Bill Oddie's Little Black Bird Book. I'm a fan of the man himself, naturally, but there's something about the self- deprecating tone of the LBBB that strikes a chord. One section involves our man categorising different types of birders, in a mostly non- judgemental way, leaving it up to ourselves to form our own opinions. During a recent day out wandering in the cold I found myself wondering whether we could categorise sites or birding locations...
