Evening all.

Been an enthusiastic amateur birdwatcher for nearly 40 years and have just joined my local club.

They have pointed me in the direction of this forum and I look forward to reading your posts and threads and maybe even contributing.

Hope you all have a good evening.

Stay safe.

Joe

Thank you. I'm looking forward to having a look around the site. Particularly interested in photography tips and reviews on binoculars if you can point me in the right direction. Have a good evening. Joe

Thanks Rich.

If you were to suggest your favourite thread / forum what would it be?

Have a good evening.

Hi Joe. I live the trip reports personally. Good to pick up some ideas. Also the ID threads. Great place to pick up tips and develop your own ID skills. We have some very knowledgeable members.

Thanks for the reply. I've already had a look in some of the ID Threads and I'll have a look for some of the Trip reports. Thanks again. Joe

Hi Joe 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 (especially if you ever get up to Leighton Moss... it's ages since I've managed to get there!)

Good evening Delia and thanks for the warm welcome.

My local bird club has 30+ Sites but Leighton Moss is certainly on my list for this winter - Never been before.

Happy birding!

Ooooh!! They put grit feeders out for the Bearded Tits in the winter - gives you great views of them. Enjoy!

Hi Joe, I have spent many great birding days out in the Blackpool and Fylde area over the years, and I wish you a warm welcome to the forum.
