If your only interest is in the programme and activities of the Wilmslow Guild Birdwatching Group - WGBG please click on http://wgbwcopy.wikidot.com. This will take you to Wilmslow Birders 1 and you should then click on the WGBG module on the top green navigation bar to see Indoor Meetings and Field Trip programmes, Field Trip Reports, Newsletters etc.

If your interest in birds and birding is wider and deeper please read on. You might like to look at Birding Places which is being extended or perhaps you might wish to visit the latest feature Wheatears.


  • The constant theme running through these websites is a focus on places where birds are seen, their habitats and niches, how they feed, cope with competition and avoid predators. All are factors which can be readily observed and can usefully augment the information which birders obtain from field guides.
  • These are active websites not just sources of occasionally used information. Accordingly visitors are monitored in order to establish areas of interest and, where appropriate, to respond to questions which keywords and phrases used in search engines.
  • Responding to visitor interest will inevitably result in fairly frequent changes in content and presentation both of which are clearly important factors in encouraging and maintaining interest.
  • One aim for this website is to look at birds from a different viewpoint focusing on unusual, challenging and even controversial issues. Various groups of birds will be discussed in a way which website visitors may find thought provoking but hopefully always interesting.

To see an overview of the purpose and content of this and related websites please click on http://bbsi.wikidot.com or type Gruffalump’s Birds into the Google search engine.

Presentation and Content.

The top green navigation bar shows the modules around which this website is constructed. Most of the modules have drop-down menus. If you need help in finding your way about please click on Navigating the website.

In line with the "billing" on the banner, as "the website which has more to offer", I use the top navigation bar to draw attention to new content which has been recently introduced so you should expect to see changes periodically.

Visitor Feedback.

Top five topics accessed by UK and US visitors in the period Jan to end May 2013 were True Finches revealed, Birds of Prey, Kingfishers, Winter Garden Birds and Cormorant eats sand-shark. In June Kingfishers, Places to see birds, and Early Birds aroused visitor interest. I am planning further content on "Places to see birds".
