Can anyone suggest a good starter camera for a new bird watcher. £200-£300 budget! I just want to get a really good crisp HD close up shot.

In addition to the afore mentioned, also SONY make some bridge cameras.
The best thing to do would be call in a a reputable camera retailer, have a look and handle some. The staff will be able to advise you based on your budget and photographic desires, and may even have a suitable used camera.
