BIRD-WATCHING FANS ALL A-TWITTER OVER AWARD-WINNING WEBSITE.
But the retired research chemist from Caldy has discovered another way of indulging in his favourite pastime, using the internet.
He has created an award winning website, voted the nation's best birdwatching site by Britain's leading twitchers. It received 60 pc of votes in a poll organised by birdwatchers.
Mr Smith, 52, has put Wirral's western coastline on the international map with his monthly cyber newsletter.
A committee member of the Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens, he has seen the number of website hits grow from from 10 to 100 a day, with enquiries coming from all over the world.
Mr Smith said: "The Dee Estuary is special because of the sheer numbers of birdlife and the scenery is among the best in the country."
The website address is www. deeestuary. co. uk
