Welcome to my birdwatching blog. This blog will contain stories about my bird watching trips, interesting bird news and other tales that may or may not be bird related. I want to make it useful to the avid birder as well as those who may only have a passing interest in bird watching. I enjoy photographing bird life, common and rare through a spotting scope, not that they always sit still long enough for me. Being on the outskirts of North East London, my reports will not only cover my local patch of Redbridge/Waltham Forest, but also dip into deepest Essex, Suffolk, Kent and Norfolk.

A quick guide to Northaw Great Wood



I recommend the Yellow Trail if you want to really suffer


And here’s why. The 2.5 mile route feels like 10 if you walk through this stuff and your socks will slide off inside your wellies due to the force of the mud clinging to your boots.



The Blue Trail is pretty but for pussies...
...but you have less chance of taking a bad photo of a Nuthatch
and more chance of getting a good shot of Bracket Fungi.
