Hello

Hey, everyone! Finally found what looks to be a great forum outside of the sphere of social media.
I've been a keen bird watcher and wildlife fanatic ever since I was a kid, pretty much as far back as I can remember.
My wife and I often visit our local nature reserves and we've created a 'wild garden' with a wildlife pond and areas where nothing but weeds grow. It's wonderful.
Anyway, nice to be here and I look forward to chatting and sharing experiences and pics

Hi Birding Addict and welcome to BirdForum. There’s been some decent birds down at Parc Slip this year.

Hi Birding Addict and a warm welcome from me too.

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

HI. Thanks for the welcome. Yes, there have been some great sightings of late by all accounts. Although, I must admit to being too busy the last couple of months to get there as much as I'd like. Which is a shame as it is one of our local patches as well as Bryngarw park and Kenfig nature reserve.
