Bird Watching / Ornithology




…..a nightingale had begun to sing with all the full throated zest of a bird conscious of having had a rave notice from the poet Keats           PG Wodehouse




Bird watching is surely one of the most popular interests in UK.    It caters for all grades of participation , from background interest in the course of a country walk to  full time twitching slung around with the biggest and best binoculars and zoom lenses.     It can be done in town and in country, in winter and in summer, at home and abroad.    And you can even write to the Times about it.
