|Red - breasted Merganser in Ramsgate Harbour - the one I found, whilst pike fishing, on The RMC |
caused quite a stir amongst the local birders
|Jack Snipe - a gimme on any serious "twitcher's" year list. To find one for yourself, on your local patch?|
A moment to be treasured - very special.
|This female Black Redstart was a right result along the cliff-top path at Foreness Point|
I've experienced the thrills that full-on twitching are capable of providing, so there's no point in my pretending otherwise and assuming some higher moral ground. Purity birding, getting right back to the very basics of what got me started is now what ensures I am able to derive every ounce of pleasure, from whatever birding encounter I experience, in these latter years.
