I've been birding since the age of 10 around Warwickshire Moor, near Tamworth & Alvecote Pools near Polesworth. I turned to the 'dark side' of chasing rarities seriously during 1999. I have a gorgeous little daughter called India (aged 13) and wonderful birding girlfried called Nadia. Apart from birdin' I enjoy watching football with my teams being Tamworth, FC United of Manchester, Manchester United & Celtic. My favourite British birding destinations are the Isles of Scilly, Cornwall and the Western Isles of Scotland. If you notice me out and about please feel free to introduce yourself.
