A Derbyshire Birders Tales...

I have been a birdwatcher for well over 25 years and have done my fair share of local patchwork and twitching in my time...I decided to set up this page to display some of the photo's and artwork that I do over the years, and to write about the stuff we do as we go birding in Derbyshire, around the UK and elsewhere.
