Hi,

Joined bird forum not so long ago, and just thought I'd say hello to all the other members. I live in Macclesfield, and am just started birdwatching again after a long break from the hobby.

There are many nest sites in my area, so it is unusual for me to go out in the season without seeing at least one every time, either flying over or fishing in one of the lochs/rivers.

It's always a thrill, as I've not taken them for granted yet.
