11 year old Bird Fanatic Ben has launched a Calendar

Bens Bird Calendar

11 year old Ben Rosenfarb from Roundwood has launched his very own bird calendar. The youngster from Roundwood has been photographing birds for a while now and more recently managed to get his hands on his dads old camera on long term loan.

We did try to pin down Ben’s favourite bird but he found it difficult to narrow it done to less than 10. We did however manage to extract his favourite calendar shot which he explained was June’s Buzzard which he described as an ‘Awesome photo!’

Young Ben has attributed his original interest to his friend Rueben Golvani-foi who he says was in the bird watching game himself and gave him the confidence to go for it too.

The 5th class student enjoys Maths, PE and Art in school. Just as important as taking the photo is knowing where to find the birds and in his free time he likes to visit the local Bird Sanctuaries including the East Coast Nature Reserve at Newcastle, which is maintained by Birdwatch Ireland and the Rosslare Bird Hide.

If you would like to purchase one of Ben’s Bird Calendars, you can catch him at Turquoise Cafe’s Christmas Market in Roundwood on 19th, 26th November and 10th, 17th December. (A little bird also told us that there will be free hot chocolate for kids who attend the market on Saturday 19th November!)
