Default Hello from Suffolk

Hi

Just joining and hoping the more knowledgeable of you will be able to help with ID when Collins Bird Guide fails me!

I have slid into birding from general photography and having come to an area stiff with waders and now working out that Ducks are more than just Ducks

I mostly post at pbase.com/crisscross and, being in late 70s use Nikon 1 J5 relatively lightweight kit

Welcome to what is indeed a very knowledgeable if rather quiet forum these days. That said, several of us do check in regularly, and who doesn't enjoy helping people to progress in this wonderful hobby? By the same token who doesn't enjoy showing off their knowledge . So ask away and enjoy the forum; I look forward to hearing of your exploits down there in lovely Suffolk.

Tony

Default thank you

thank you all for both warm welcome and solving my ID problem, general as well as specific.

I normally post to a photography orientated forum and often get no help with IDs. PS I got thrown out of World Photography Forum some years back and Bird Forum along with it owned by the same guys who seemed keener on raking in advertising cash than giving members a democratic voice.

If you are near to Dunwich Heath that's a great spot for Dartford Warbler
and not far from there is stone Curlew. There is also Hen reedbed reserve
and Havergate, I know there are lovely spots up and down that coast.
