In reply to Alan.:
Many thanks Alan - found them straight away once you told me the name... I'm a complete novice but I'm sure I'll soon get the hang of things and learn to unearth info myself!

You're right about the learning Alan - I've recently retired and realised I've spent a lifetime seeing birds and appreciating them without knowing anything about any of them - time to correct it; and a great excuse to get out and about too!
Agreed Alan - I've always used bins and I've got a camera now to help keep a record of what I see... It's pretty embarrassing really - I was a soldier for nearly 40 years and saw quite a lot of the world; jungles, deserts, mountains, forests, prairies, arctic etc and never took a camera anywhere! I guess I'll have to revisit some of the places with my eyes focussed differently...
It's not just me then... I guess it depends on your priorities at the time and of course it was much harder in the days before digital cameras and the internet at your fingertips 24/7. I was always travelling light and invariably had to carry everything you took which tended to focus you on the essentials!
