I am a keen birder and photographer based in Cornwall.  Cornish born and bred, I live in Truro. I started birding at the age of ten and 47years later, the hobby is still as strong. In my spare time I also run the swoptics  optical and camera equipment shop in Truro! I rarely twitch outside of the county now, preferring to stay local except for organised birding holidays abroad. My last twitches were for the Hudsonian Godwit in Somerset (April 2015 - dipped) and prior to that the Brunnich's Guillemot in Jan 2014 at Portland (ticked).  Rock Thrush in Gwent Oct 2017, a bird I have longed to see in the UK.

My main interest is migration, an aspect of birding that Cornwall lends itself to perfectly. Sadly my full-time shop commitments don't allow me to be birding every day but I will post all the interesting images and blog as and when time allows.
