Hi all (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Just joined and saying hello from Glasgow, Scotland. Hope to increase my knowledge of birds & other wildlife, and also to get some ideas on photography & kit.

It was my love of photography that got me more into wildlife, however having looked at some of the stunning pictures on here, I may well put the camera in a cupboard and take up golf or something.

I find bird identification difficult (have several books...), as there are so many considerations eg male/female, juvenile/adult, summer/winter plumage etc, but keen to learn. And despite the above para, will persevere with camera....!

I'm mostly a garden observer, but get about from time to time. Best bits from a back garden in Glasgow: female pheasant, sparrowhawk, waxwings every December on migration, goldfinch, greenfinch.

Bye for now

Hi Muso and a warm welcome to you on behalf of the Staff and Moderators.

Keep an eye on the Scottish bashes 2011 thread. We usually have a few each year and they are all great fun. You'd be most welcome to join us if you can manage. We're currently trying to organise one in Lothian later in the month.

All things Scottish can be found HERE.
