Hello from West Sussex

Hi I'm Howdie a retired Public Health Doctor. I've been a keen amateur birdwatcher for more than 60 years. I joined the New Zealand Forest & Bird Society back in the 1950's as a school child and was fortunate during the period I lived in New Zealand to go to off-shore Islands, Kapiti, Poor Knights and Codfish (Whenua Hou) designated as sanctuaries where I encountered many rare and unusual species and had the benefit of trained professional ornithologists. I have now lived in West Sussex for more than 30 years but have spent a lot of time in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Hi and welcome to birdforum from all the staff, we hope you enjoy the site and feel free to join in where ever you fancy. Very jealous of your birding exploits in New Zealand.
cheers,
Andy

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.
