My first experience of intentional birdwatching took place in Richmond Great Park. The time;

1986 Air Max 1 Sale Outlet , the occasion; one of the first dates with my (now) girlfriend. There I was, all

dressed up and ready to knock her out with my charm, memory plays strange tricks as you get

older and there she was, luring me into the undergrowth of the local park, hissing to me to

keep my head down. No Air Max Sale Outlet , it wasn't this bird's feathers she was after observing, but a large

Green woodpecker that she had spotted. It must have been love on my part because, although I

don't remember seeing the flash of emerald, I do remember getting my trendy new boots

covered in mud.

That was the first of many times that I have shared the joys of avian

observation with my spouse. She had been a committed twitcher from an early age. As a Girl,

a family friend had dragged her along to many birdwatching expeditions Nike Air Max 2017 Sale , from sighting a

large wader (a ruff) on a one time sewage farm, soon to become the fifth terminal at

Heathrow, to happy weekends spent observing the many migrants arriving on the Norfolk coast

from Europe. Birdwatching is one nature pursuit that just about anybody can get something

out of, and most of us have 'twitched' at some time in our lives. What child hasn't fed the

ducks, or pigeons? That's the good thing about birds. They are so accessible. You can see

them almost everywhere at any time of the day. And you can hear their beautiful songs.

Blackbirds and nightingales have been immortalised in song and verse. The ubiquitous gull

can be heard far inland; pigeons coo vociferously in our city centres; rooks squawk as they

arrive at their evening roosts and starlings chatter as they gather in flocks on our roofs Nike Air Max 2018 Sale ,

telegraph wires and urban trees. No other wild animal group is so easy to see and admire.

The skill of flying, and therefore the ability to get out of the way if needs must, has been

a boon for the latent birdwatcher in all of us.

That birdwatching foray with my girlfriend to

be was the first of many enjoyable observations of our feathered friends. Some I will never

forget. Standing on top of the Preseli hills in Wales and listening to the liquid bubbling

coming from the throats of hundreds of curlews in the gathering dusk of the evening, sadly

not a common occurrence nowadays. Or that magic afternoon, cycling along a country road with

my oldest friend and counting 32 larks as they rose skywards from the fields either side of

us. Another sight Nike Air Max 1 Sale , rarer now than it used to be, was the spectacle of thousands of starlings

darkening the sky and turning as if they were one giant Bird whooshing around the Sky above

the field next to our first home. We've watched puffins and guillemots on Skomer island off

the coast of West Wales and along the seashore we have seen countless flocks of all sorts of

waders. And how to describe the thrill of seeing two peregrine falcons screeching over a

deceased pigeon that they were devouring at the base of a sea cliff, or watching red kites

circling lazily in the thermals above the hills of mid Wales. I'm so glad I've seen at least

one dipper incongruously running along a stream bed, underwater feeding. Another stream

frequenter, the heron Nike Air Max Sale , can also be sighted, perched in prehistoric stance, in the middle of

a field. What is it doing? I am assured by that fount of all bird knowledge, my girlfriend,

that it's on the lookout for a tasty mole. Sometimes Air Max 2017 Sale , if we went out on a Summer night, we

would be lucky enough to catch sight of a Little Owl, staring down at us from his high perch

on a telegraph pole. We called one of our houses Hafod Y Wennol, Welsh for summer house of

the swallows, because Air Max 2018 Sale , in it's previous life as a cow parlour, the swallows had swooped in

and made their little mud nests on it's walls. We felt so guilty at evicting them from their

home, especially after such a long and perilous journey from their Winter habitat somewhere

in Africa. But swallow poo is prolific and not to be tolerated indoors and they did have a

garage and another barn to breed in. For many years they were a significant part of our

summer, the sighting of the first arrival was always noted. Their twittering and swooping

round the farmyard a never ending source of enjoyment, their gathering on the telephone wire

and subsequent departure a gloomy time Air Max 1 Sale , heralding as it did the approaching winter.

At our

next home, a tall Edwardian town house, we had the amazing luck to be the Summer residence

to a flock of swifts, whose ariel acrobatics as they screamed past our windows would have

put the Red Devils Aircraft display team to shame. We never tired of watching as they

swooped and dived after insects, banking at the last second when it seemed they must collide

with the house wall. This was much better than television!

We have been lucky enough to live

in a beautiful part of the country where birdlife is prolific and constant. But town

dwellers have opportunities too. In any urban garden a wide variety of town birds can be

seen Air Max Sale , especially with a little bit of encouragement. Introduce a nut feeder and a bird table

and, abracadabra, in an amazingly short space of time there will be b DPRK women attend a cross-border trade fair in Dandong. [PhotoChina Daily] DPRK women .
