Hi, from a keen birdwatcher.

By

Hi, I too found this site through GoY.

My OH and I are both RSPB members, keen birdwatchers but not twitchers. We own a motorhome and spend most of our holidays birdwatching from Lands End to John O’groats and including the Orkneys and the Outer Hebrides. We love it.

We feed the birds winter and summer and have 3 nest boxes in our garden. One has a colour camera with infra-red light and microphone fitted and we view on a screen in our study. We now have the equipment to download pictures and video footage from the nest box but we’re waiting for our son to set it up. There is nothing nesting there, but a bluetit has been roosting there every night since April. We do have another nesting box that has a wren nesting in it and she is obviously feeding her brood at the moment. No camera in that one though :-( We also have another open front box that was newly added this spring and as yet has nothing in it.

We have so far seen 41 species of bird in our garden and do all we can to attract more.

Thankyou for the welcome Jane. My past efforts at bird photography have not been great :-( I'll have to try harder. When we get the equipment to the nestbox cam set up, I'll try and add some photos then.
