    The Price Of Glory?

    I have been thinking recently about the cost of birding. So can i ask you, my fellow birders, some questions that have popped up? 1. Do you calculate the costs of going birding? 2. What price do you normally pay to see a bird? 3. What has been your most expensive dip? 4. Do you partake in...

    that's the difference between us..

    This, i presume, should be a conservation thread. But please Mr/Mrs Mod move it if you feel it should be somewhere else. Anyhoo, was in bed last night and my wife asked what i would like for my forthcoming birthday. Not really needing anything and all the things i want are pretty much...

    RFI - South Wales

    Morning BFers... I will be off to Newport in a few days time. So I'm sure to get my leg pulled over the rugby. As they say...don't dish it out if you can't take it! Fair play to them, you see :) I usually do some birding at Goldcliff and the Estuary and also visit Llandeggford reservoir. I'd be...

So after getting totally lost twice in Bedford trying...

    Arthur

    ARTHUR. I may have been a naughty boy recently... The kids found a baby bird last wednesday on the pavement outside a neighbours house. As the resident 'Birdman', I got called out to pass judgement and advice. I said I'd take it home, put it in a box and place it under the stairs, so it...

    Nikon Sporter 8x36 / 10x36

    Have noticed these advertised on Warehouse Express for around £100. I'm thinking of buying a second pair of bins. I need a 1/2 decent pair for when I can convince the Wife or Kids to come birding with me! As the Nikons are small roofprisms I think they might be OK for the family. Do any Forum...

I got 2 'lifers'.....American Wigeon and Black throated Diver, so no guessing where I went!!! I managed to avoid the crowds, breathed in a large gulp of fresh sea air and increased...

I've never managed to get a maximum score....best to date 3030! Looking in the 'hall of fame', there are loads of people who manage it....all I can say is...
