Contact Details

I changed ISP provider some time ago, and although I thought all my mail was being forwarded, including from other sub-accounts, it has been brought to my attention recently that this is not the case ! So, if you have contacted me over the last year and have had no reply from me please accept my apologies, but I have not received your mail. Some have got through, however, so it appears sporadic depending on which route the mail is forwarded.

I will be putting updated contact details on here soon, possibly a specific hotmail account. However, I am very wary of doing this as I will no doubt receive requests for information on where to see Scottish and Parrot Crossbills, as well as general Spam ! I NEVER give out this specific information as these locations are sites where I or two of my colleagues in Grampian Ringing Group ring Crossbills and are thus very sensitive. So to avoid potential offence (by being ignored) please do not ask for this !

I can also be reached on (ahem!) BurdForum - I keep a very limited profile on there specifically to gather and respond to Waxwing colour-ring sightings on behalf of GRG. My handle is "Bombycilla". Please note I rarely log-in to pick up PM but the email address on there does appear to work. Now I have put this out, I will probably be banned again....... I also have limited presence on Twitter ( see column to the right).


Coming soon on LF, a short article on Crossbill Wing Moult:

Lindsay, found some crossbills the other day by Loch Morlich, bit confused as to my eye they looked like Commons they were singing though and the song seemed different from the song of birds I'm used to in North Yorkshire. There were some deep chupping sounds in the background. The flight calls though sounded quite 'normal'. Feeding in larch. I've posted some pix and will post some video with (not very good) sound. Probably not identifiable but if you've got a minute I'd welcome your view.

My goodness you are a most refreshing writer - given some of the curious moves made against you on certain sites I have to take my hat off to you; well done.
Kind regards
