Hello from a new bird enthusiast (1 Viewer)

Hello,

I joined the other day just to ask one question, but after a bit of time on this site I've learnt loads about birding that it's been difficult to find elsewhere. Given that I've asked a couple of questions now, I figured it was time to make an introduction post.

I've had a passing interest in birds for a couple of years, but only recently decided to keep notes of what I see and learn to ID them properly. Since making that decision, I've found that I've really noticed the birds around me a lot more. From a combination of this and lockdown, I've now become completely obsessed! I live in Sweden but spend a lot of time in the UK, so it will be interesting to see the similarities and differences between the birds I come across in both places.

I've only posted questions so far, but the responses have been incredibly helpful, so thank you - there's clearly a lot of expertise here! I hope I can learn enough to be able to help people out with their questions as well in the future.

Hi Louise

It’s so good to hear that you have had a good response on the ID forums - as someone that enjoys helping others, it really good to get feedback like this from new members. Do keep posting your ID questions, even if you think it may be something obvious, and before long, I am sure people will be looking to you for advice!

A really warm welcome to you! πŸ™‚

It's very much appreciated :) It's hard to know where to look when I can't ID something myself with guides etc, but figuring out the hard ones is the best way to learn. I'm impressed with how many people jump in and how quickly, so thank you!
