The Edinburgh Birdwatcher( Euan Buchan) has been birdwatching since 2002. His first encounter of birds & birdwatching came at a early age of 13 when he saw a programme called Birding With Bill Oddie in 1997. Bill Oddie’s expertise made him interested in birdwatching and thought he will take it up but it wasn’t until 2002 when he got into it properly and has been doing it ever since. He’s been lucky to have watched birds in America, France,The Outer Hebrides, England, Ireland, Cuba & St Kilda. In 2003 Euan became a volunteer at RSPB’s Loch Leven Nature Reserve he left in November that year. Whilst he was there his proud achievement was at a fun day at the Reserve a young boy came up to him and said ‘you’ve inspired me to taking on birding. In 2010 Euan became a Wildlife Watch Group Leader until March of 2011. In 2012 Euan became a Events Research Assistant at The RSPB’s Scotland Headquarters which was more volunteer work. In 2014 Euan returned to volunteer work with The Scottish Wildlife Trust helping at the office. Euan’s local patches are his local Park, Cammo Estate & Cramond Beach.
