Welcome to the forum.

This forum has been set up to fill what I have found to be a gap in local bird discussion for the general Thames Valley area. There are several excellent National and International bird forums, plus more local information and scientific sites, but I thought it would be useful to open a forum for like minded people, specialising in our home area.

Please note that this is not a forum solely for experts, no prior knowledge of birds is required to join or post here, simply an appreciation of wild/garden birds.

Any suggestions as to new sections and improving the forum are welcome, I am looking forward to members posting pictures of their local birds, gardens and feeding arrangements. I will add new local area sections, as and when members join from those areas.

Members can upload photos up to 400KBs. If you are at a loss as to how you can easily resize your pictures, then download Pix Resizer, a free program which can resize a whole folder at one time to a selected size, very easily.

I hope you will enjoy the forum, and look forward to any new members posting an introduction here.


PS. Don't worry if you are not from the Thames Valley, we are delighted to see anyone with an interest in bird life.
