Barn Owl update.

Day 3 observing the Owl near the hide, and i notice 2 days she does the same thing. She tends to hunt from 1400 to 15.30 sometimes returning to her roosting box. I have observed a very interesting fact, that i read for years that the Barn Owl will not hunt in the rain and… Read more »

Barn Owl

The site opened and i went to do my normal check of the Hide after winter, but i did visit early Jan/Feb before the site opened. There was a very welcoming site as i came down the track through the woods, silently hunting was the amazing Barn Owl. I was so excited after so long… Read more »

Detail with the new Camera

I ma very impressed with the Olympus on how much detail it captures and the colours and composition seems to be perfect. I do edit most pictures but i rarely alter the colours. This little Pied Wagtail and Great Tit were on the way back from the coast in small wood near to were we… Read more »

A walk along the Coast

Another nice day in Cleveley’s Lancashire so i headed off with the camera to see if the tide was in, as the Sandlings feed close to the shore line and are great to get close to without them flying off. A hard bird to get great detail being white but i got a few nice… Read more »

Birds in Flight

More practice with the new camera up at Fleetwood, lots of Mallard and Redshank, Sandpiper and Turnstone. All flying very fast so i had my work cut out but managed a few images, but there is a long way to go before i master this new Camera.

Grey Heron

Fleetwood Lancashire is a great place for wading birds in the Winter and the Boating lake attracts lots of species when the tide is in. The Heron is one that uses it to sit in the sun and chill out before it goes off for food, these were taken using the Olympus EM1 MK2.

Teal Reflection

I have waited a long time to get the chance to get up and personal with this Lovely little Duck. It has a habit of moving away as soon as its sense something not  right or anyone lurking in the grass with a Camera. The Tide was high today and the cold winter sun was… Read more »


Don’t you just love the detail on this over looked bird that arrives in the UK from Russia in the Autumn. Taken from my garden window.

A new look to the Hide.

I have removed all the old logs and stumps and replaced with new stumps to give the hide a new fee to it and give the photographer a new angle on the photographs. It was heavy going and there is still lots to do. The roof needs a big repair job on it, new Chairs… Read more »

New Species at the Hide

On Wednesday i was sat at the Hide when a Willow Tit landed and fed on the sunflower hearts. This is the first sighting of this little bird in the 4 years i have set the hide up. It seemed to be on its own and looks very similar to the Coal Tit but has… Read more »
