Hello from Fife, Scotland

Hello birding community!

Have dipped in and out of the forum for a few years and thought it would finally be nice to say hello.

I have been a part-time birdwatcher for about a quarter of a century (Part-time = rubbish at gull/wader/little brown bird identification, but know a redshank from a robin).
I am always amazed at the expertise people have when it comes to this lovely hobby (obsession?)!

I love the peace and sense of escape that peering through my scope looking at our feathered friends brings, and the anticipation of something unusual coming into view.

If only life was like that all the time...

Regards,
Spoonbill1970

..... yes, if only LOL

Hi Spoonbill and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

All things Scottish can be found here. Also, keep an eye on threads titled something like Scottish Bashes; we try to meet up occasionally and they're always great fun. You'd be most welcome to join us on another if you can manage.
