possibly my last post

yes, I'm afraid so.

This blog has shown a year of my life, but I've found it too time-consuming with exams, friendships, and all the regular teenage shit to keep it updated, plus, I've lost a lot of interest in the sort of birding I was into as I first posted on the net. I still love birds, but this blog had become a lot less fun to keep updated the last few months and I've given up largely on hardcore birding or wanting to be a big part of the scene. maybe the easy path for me ya know, counting the toads in the garden, maybe getting on my bike occasionally to visit the patch, but the laidback life seems a nice route to take. Teenagers do sadly have to have a social life which comes first before any bird!

I might be making another blog which reflects a change in interests, in which case my actual last post will be a link to that blog. But for now, thanks to everyone who has read this, and commented on it, and to all the local birders who have told me how much they enjoyed reading it when I've been out and about. It's been a pretty awesome year...


  1. A shame. I don't see how you can't have a social life, 'do what teenagers do' and keep on enjoying this magical hobby that I thank my past self for taking up every single day. Few birders have had the pleasure of enjoying the natural world in their teenage years with all the youthful freedom, time and relative lack of committment that people our age are priveleged to have (and we won't have it for much longer, so I'm making the most of it!).

    Still, if you feel you've not been enjoying what you're doing then its best not to force it. Have fun with the 'teenage stuff' ;-)

  2. Sorry to hear this news, Liam. Unfortunately, many young birders seem to lose their enthusiasm these days but I guarantee that you will return to it one day. Once a birder, always a birder.
    Good luck with whatever you do.
