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 »

Birds in my garden.

I only got a few but what i got really shows to image quality and brilliant colours… Read more »

Quick trip to Estuary.

The sun came out for a brief time so I nipped to see what I could find. A little Robin posed for me and got a nice crisp image of it with the Sun on its red chest. Then feeding in the grass after the tide went out was a Little Egret.

Parakeet

There are now 6 Parakeets living in the Park and seem to be attracting lots of visitors. They maybe a bit special for people to see but in the long run they could do lots of harm to the other bird species in the park. They take over the Great Spotted Woodpecker nest holesĀ  Anyway… Read more »

Oystercatcher Fleetwood.

A Walk in the Park

Egret on the Coast.

Out again with sunny spells so only a few opportunities to try and get the Egrets in flight. I noticed when I was on my Scooter at a place called Stanah that the Egret fed close to the path where people walk but every so often they would take to flight. So again trying to… Read more »

From March this year, this is the Barn Owl i rescued from the Cam net near the Hide. It took 40 mins to cut it free and it later came in and thanked me with this amzing pose.
