New to birding?

Under construction!

If you are new to birding, things can be quite confusing! First there is bewildering diversity of birds, with different shapes, sizes, plumages and voices. Then there is the alien terminology, strange names, some Latin and Greek thrown in, nit-picky colours like buff, bay, ochre, rufous. Please don’t let any of this put you off! The first and most important thing is to watch birds for the pure pleasure of doing so.
