Morgithology – Geoff MorganBlog
Birds, wildlife and ecology in Lothian and beyond - I have been birding for as long as I can remember - well, ever since I saw Reed Buntings and Tree Sparrows in the garden as a four year old. I am keen on gulls, waders, raptors and passerines, though when birding abroad all the colourful stuff comes in handy as well... I'm based in Edinburgh and bird mainly in Lothian and elsewhere in Scotland. My real home patch is in North Wales - the awesome and well-known nightjar site near Nercwys. Not a twitcher but I do like seeing new stuff so I'm hoping to self-find more in the future than I have in the past...
What Birds I Saw TodayBlog
I was thinking about New Years resolutions for 2013 and thought to myself I know – I’m going to try and list the birds I see or hear on a daily basis for the entire year of 2013. Then I thought maybe others might want to do the same and that’s why this website is now here. I hope that it continues after 2013 and more people join in the fun of recording birds…

Birdwatching sites in LothianWebsite
The aim of this guide is to provide birdwatchers, whether locals, new arrivals or visitors with some basic information on where to birdwatch in Lothian Region. Most sections are written by someone familiar with the site, except for a few for which I have provided a few notes! The Birds of the Lothians and the Lothian Bird Reports give some idea of where most people go birdwatching, but this guide provides useful information not only on where to go, but also details of site access (supplemented with maps) and also the species likely to be seen during the year. The best known sites are mainly coastal and are covered in some detail, but a variety of inland sites complete the whole range of habitats from which Lothian benefits. Lothian may be one of the best watched parts of Scotland.
