"Birder or Twitcher? For now I prefer Birder - if I ever visit the Scilly Isles or the Shetland Isles then I'll admit to being a Twitcher.

Either way, in my book, a 'tick' requires photo evidence. I enjoy photography so I decided to combine the two. I would much rather look back at a photograph and relive the moment in a few years; rather than just have some jotted notes and a fading memory.

Considering some of the many 'old school' birders/twitchers I have encountered so far - it's no wonder LGRE* thinks cheating is rife (deliberate or otherwise).

Having said all that, I'm in competition with no-one and I'm on no 'official' lists. I just do all of this for personal satisfaction and enjoyment. If anybody does see a mis-identification on this site then please let me know."
