Bird Watching (UK) - - Your View -

@Bird­watch­ing­mag: How long have you been bird watch­ing and what bird or oc­ca­sion sparked your in­ter­est? A trip to Queens­land, Aus­tralia was the be­gin­ning of it all for me JAG Na­ture Pho­tog­ra­phy, Face­book I al­ways credit the Nuthatch with spark­ing my in­ter­est in birds, which be­gan about 20 years ago. Reg Tele­scope, Twit­ter I started aged 8, so 32 years ago. New house next to over­grown gar­den. Had red­poll and Siskin in my gar­den. Ian Ben­nell, Twit­ter Reg­u­lar sight­ings of Golden and White­tailed Ea­gles, out­side my kitchen win­dow! He­len, Face­book In 1974, I was in the army in Ger­many when I saw my first Great Spot­ted Wood­pecker. Ron Sut­ton, Face­book I placed a bird­feeder in gar­den, a neigh­bour en­cour­aged me, I joined RSPB and vol­un­teered af­ter nine years at Belfast Zoo. Jim Mcke­own, Face­book I found it a great aid for de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety. Bird­ing helps me to re­lax and gets me out­side in the fresh air and ac­tive. Blythe Storm, Face­book

Been bird­ing for 30 years. My in­ter­est was sparked off by a new mag­a­zine called Bird Watch­ing. Ended up a vol­un­teer @Sup­port­nwt in the 1990s. Ian Pritchard, Twit­ter I made a wooden bird ta­ble with my father when I was about 7. I have loved birds, watch­ing them and car­ing for them ever since. Nicki Man­ning, Face­book
