Home Page British Birds photographed in Devon and Cornwall  
We are often asked what are good places to go to observe wildlife. Our answer is "look around you". This is especially true of the rich variety of birdlife which surround us - in our gardens and parks as well as in the countryside. We live in an urban suburb of Plymouth yet we are constantly amazed at the variety of birdlife we can observe from our windows and in our garden. The links below will lead you to photographs and descriptions of birds we have been lucky enough to observe and photograph during our rambles in Devon and Cornwall.
