Robin Goldfinch Greenfinch

Sat on my decking when the birds came in for there last feed of the day. The Greenfinch and Goldfinch took a liking to a certain plant that sits near to the feeders. When they can’t get onto the feeder they perch on top of this plant and wait for a space to come free…. Read more »

Red Squirell

Lovely time me and Ruth had when we were both fit and well, hopefully when we are both better we can go and see these beautiful animals.

Wildlife Portrait Photography.

After 10 years of filming wildlife I have noticed on the web that images are mainly full animals and Birds so with my fascination for detail thought it would be a good idea to create a new group just for Face and Head images. We tend to miss the detail and markings our wildlife here… Read more »
