The uk.rec.birdwatching FAQ was hatched in the spring of 1999. It migrated to the Web in July 2000, and has since gained numerous companion pages.
Later I extended the site with the “Birding in the Netherlands” and “Web Matters” sub-sites. In fact “Web Matters” took over as the main subject of the site!
Since about 2007 I've been too busy with other things to add much more to the site; I do however make small corrections and improvements from time to time. My thanks to correspondents who point things out.
