Backwoodsman exists to share images of and some thoughts about birds encountered in Glasgow city and the Central Belt of Scotland. There may be exceptions to this policy but mostly, the sites visited are within a walk or a short train ride of my home in the city centre.

Images were recorded as RAW files on a Pentax K3-II camera, with a 150-450 mm F4.5-5.6 lens using available light. ISO settings up to 3200 were used with spot AE metering and spot AF. Some slow shutter speeds (as low as 1/100th) were unavoidable in winter light but tricky when the photographer was semi-frozen and shivering. Images were processed minimally in Adobe Lightroom software v6.10.1.

There are no rarities here but I think it will be a long time before I tire of seeing any of them; I hope they will be found in these locations for many years to come.
