About me

Location Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction The Shat Birder Blogspot is a culmination of a life long interest in wildlife, particularly birds, and the interest my family and friends have shown in the places I've visited and the wildlife I have seen. I am no David Attenborough nor am I ever going to win Wildlife Photographer of the Year, I have however had a great deal of enjoyment watching wildlife both locally and further a field. This blog is a great way to share that enjoyment and enthusiasm with anyone who has a similar interest. Not only have I had the fortune of growing up in a village surrounded by fields, I have had the added bonus of use of a family cottage in Filey. A quick look at the photos in the Country Park Café shows just how good Filey is for bird watching and as a weekend getaway goes, for someone with my interests it doesn’t come much better. Skelmanthorpe has its fair share of wildlife though too. My garden looks out over fields, which form part of the valley out towards Emley Moor Television Mast, a prominent landmark in the area. It is this view, which I have decided to use for the header to my blog.
