With a general love of the natural world I had been noting the bird species in my garden. In 2010 I joined a local Birding group and beacme a fully -fledged Birder. Wherever I go on local, further afield or international travels, even if the trips are not specifically for birding, I take note and where possible photograph any birds I see
