Additional Information
Started birding in 1979 when I was 11 years old after winning a free subscription to the YOC after winning a Blue Peter Garden birds competition.
I then learned to escape into the fields to avoid the bullies and found I more birds.
In 1987 I became unemployed and started Birding seriously. In 1989 I had my first scope for my 21st Birthday. In this year I was introduced to the Lowestoft Birders who showed me a Long-eared Owl. I never recovered from being Bullied and find it hard to make friends so still prefer Birding on my own. I now just work my local 10km square trying to beat my year list annually.
