Raymond Marsh | the Internet Bird Collection
As a young boy I was interested in natural history especially birds but joining the Army at age 15 and being the father of two boys before I was 22 meant my birding activities were put hold for several years. Sporting activities then took over until in 1981 I became a bird ringer and this is still my main passion. In 2003 after retiring early we moved to the Costa Blanca in Spain but despite being responsible for ringing over 50K birds in Europe, the Americas and Africa I could not get a Spanish ringing permit so bird watching and photography took over with ringing expeditions overseas fitted in where I can. I am really a birder that takes phtographs but I hope that some of my better photographs shown here will bring pleasure to viewers.
