    Filthy twitchers - which birds do you regret NOT going for?

    I am walking on water at the moment Britseye, with a heart full of hope.......for the Wolves are coming alive! But yes Liverpool were superb and I was really pleased for Klopp.

    Filthy twitchers - which birds do you regret NOT going for?

    Cheers Britseye, I must admit I do too much reminiscing (which I do enjoy) and too little birding these days.

    Filthy twitchers - which birds do you regret NOT going for?

    I must admit, looking back, I could quite easily have connected with at least a fifteen more species than I have in Britain, often it was just down to being broke, hesitation, or just the fact that migrants tend to come at the same time and you have to take your pick at the time. Some are...
