Additional Information
I started birding casually in 1963, then seriously in 1973.Visited Cape Clear Island ,SW Ireland regularly in the 70's & early 80's. Capes a fantastic place for finding your own good birds & seabirding. I did my fair share of twitching, seeing some great birds over the years.The 1978 Cheddar Wallcreeper being a personal favourite. After a period in the doldrums in the 90's, when I went through a personal crisis, I did very little serious birding. I got into it again seriously in 1999, but now with a different approach. I enjoy all wildlife watching. My main birding interests are pelagic seabirding, Gull i.d., birds of prey, Phylloscopus Warblers & self-found . I have given up serious twitching as I am no longer able to drive & have other commitments but the occasional long stayer will tempt me. The 2009 Staines Moor Brown Shrike being an example.
Besides wildlife & plants, I have an interest in historical aviation, railway history (the steam era) & history.
