For this final page I thought it would be interesting to show a few pics of the "Birders" you might bump into on your travels around Yorkshire birding sites!


All are knowledgeable birders and I'm sure would be happy for you to introduce yourself and swap birding info with them etc.


If you'd like the kudos of being included - either send me a pic or let me know when we meet up and I'll be happy to take one of you.
