Hello from the Wet and Wild NW of England (1 Viewer)

Hi all. I'm relatively new to bird watching. My husband got me interested in it a few years ago. Before we were married we had a 4,000 mile long distance relationship and I would tell him about the birds and wildlife I would see in the US and he would tell about the UK. Now married and living in the UK, I'm learning to identify the birds we see. So fair warning I may ask a lot of seemingly silly questions about fairly common birds but they're still new to me. I look forward to "speaking" to you all.

Hi Melissa and welcome to Bird Forum :hi:

Ask away.....everyone on here was a newcomer to birdwatching once and even now, nearly 30 years on, I still make mistakes :-O

Look forward to hearing about your days out birding - I can still remember how exciting it all was when I first started out in 1984 o:)
