I became interested in bird watching when about 8yrs old, but wavered in my late teens. Recently retired and still learning, I am looking forward to being able to do more birding.
I use a Canon 7D and 40D camera with a Canon 100-400mm, Canon prime 5.6 400mm, Canon prime 4.0 500mm and Tamron 90mm macro lenses. I do not consider myself to be a "serious" photographer, bur a birder who carries a camera.
I have lived in Rugby, Warwickshire for sixty years but now live in Bempton, East Riding of Yorkshire.
