I'm a birder just getting out of the novice stage and into the journeyman stage of birding. I just say my 300th Ohio bird on Saturday - White-winged Crossbill.
New to birding, hoping to build my list up soon.
Dipping since 1988 - best dips include Double-crested Cormorant (on the first day it didn't come in, having been present for six weeks), Sibe Rubythroat in Dorset (my driver saw it but I walked up the hill), Lark Sparrow at Waxham, Parula, B+W, Y-rumped and Chestnut-sided Wbrs, Middle-spotted Wpr, Belted Kingfisher, Black-bellied Storm and Swinhoes Petrels, Ruppell's and Ern Bonelli's Wbrs, Tufted Puffin and BC Bee-eater!! Latest dip - Dusky Thrush after an overnight drive from Stornoway!
Mainly interested in insects particularly dragonflies and butterflies, birds are a sideline that get fitted in when the former aren't about.
I am the current CEO of BTO. A birder since the age of 7, with note-taking and specialist trips starting in 1971. Late onto the world scene, I'm never going to be a big world-lister, but now choosing a 'bucket-list' of 50 most desirable species world-wide. British, Self-found British and Norfolk lists all relatively important.
Semi-retired birder and twitcher when I can get away with it! Began birding about 11-12 years ago, wish I'd started much earlier in life.
Leaving school a couple of days so plenty more days for ,e to go birding!
Ive been birding for a few years now and i enjoy seeing rare birds and finding my own birds!
County bird recorder for Nottinghamshire. I have been birdwatching/birding since 1978. Other interests include astronomy, and a passing interest in botany, odonata and lepidoptera. I have a BSc with the Open University, graduating in 2001 with a 2.1
Wish I had more time to go birding!
I don't twitch outside Kent these days, unless I am in Dorset, then I don't twitch outside Dorset.
Interested in Birds, Moths and Mammals anywhere really.
Not particularly fussed about a BOU life list, but keener on my Kent list and seeing new species abroad.
Joint architect of BUBO Listing with Mike Prince. Originally from Leeds, spent six years in Bristol, a couple of years in Cornwall and have lived in Norfolk since 1996. Worked 25 years at BTO, but now a freelance ecologist specialising in invertebrate surveys. In spare time (hah!) I can mostly be found bug-bothering in south Norfolk.
Been birding since 82,,Twitched quite a bit in 80s early 90s,family commitments and lack of funds curtailed this,seen a lot of good birds at my local patch Seaforth NR,often go for local rarities in and around Lancs,recently started going further afield again trying to boost my list,some bad omissions which i hope to catch up with next couple of years
Have been birding for 35 years both in Britain and abroad. Self employed ecologist.

A Pure bird and wildlife enthusiast.
Scottish born and bred, living in Zimbabwe for 30 years, Children in Australia so visit often. Side trips to Canada, China, New Zealand, India
Status: Absolute beginner. I started birding in 2013. Not a big lister, but thought it would be nice to keep track of what I see. A friend recommended this site which I thought a great idea after having lost some of my birding data in a computer crash.
Living in Germany, not too far from the dutch and the belgian borders, but do love to travel, so will hopefully be able to add birds from all over the world
Pretty new to this I am constantly looking for inspiration birding-wise and birders (North Rhine Westfalia.or elsewhere)
