Hey, anyone bird around the telford and stafford area? or the aberystwyth area?

Yo, i'm from a small town called Newport, in Shropshire- its kinda inbetween Telford and Stafford. my favourite haunt is aqualate mere national nature reserve, but i also walk many footpaths in the area to find new birds. does anyone else bird in this area? or for that matter anywhere near Telford or Stafford. Also, i am a student at Aberystwyth university, in wales, and so i spend a lot of time in aber. i bird round the town, the seafront, constitution hill, tanwyblch, and pendinas mainly. also i volunteer at bwlch nant yr arian. and i go up ynys-hir quite a bit as i have mates volunteering there. anyone else bird in any of these plaaces? got any secrets to share? if you're willing to, i might have useful info for you aswell.

Hello Mcmerlin, welcome to Birdforum. Have a look on the 'your local patch' thread, there's quite a few round your neck of the woods.
