Sightings

Welcome to my sightings page, where I aim to display a compilation of my birding and wildlife sightings and experiences. From January 2016, I started to use social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to share my experiences (please click here to view older records). Please feel free to view, follow, like, comment, etc.
