I want to encourage all of you who love birds to join a bird forum and share your sightings and photos. It doesn’t matter how good you are at photography; you just need to find a friendly, supportive forum where all photos are welcomed. Even if your photos are nowhere near professional quality, you might be sharing a sighting of a bird that no-one else on your forum has seen. Very exciting! So go on … give it a go!
