Bird Watching (UK) - - Welcome - Matt Mer­ritt, Ed­i­tor

BIRD­WATCH­ING IS, above all, about see­ing and en­joy­ing birds, and our My 200 Bird Year cam­paign, launched on page 16, aims to help you do just that. Sign up, and join us in mak­ing 2017 the year in which you dis­cover just how easy it is to find a huge va­ri­ety of birds you hadn’t seen be­fore. Our other fea­tures also have great ideas on bird­ing your lo­cal patch, see­ing birds in the big city, and find­ing a whole fam­ily of bird species in a sin­gle day. Of course, for­eign travel is also a great way to do that, and our free travel guide gives you the low­down on some as­ton­ish­ing or­nitho­log­i­cal hotspots, from Texas to Tai­wan. And a reminder – our front cover this month, by Charles Joseph, is from the Bird Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year short­list. If you want to en­ter this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, just fol­low the link be­low, and who knows, your work could soon grace our cover.
