hide attacks

Tragic to hear this morning that yet another wildlife hide in South Wales has been burnt down by arsonists. I just do not understand the mentality. It was bad enough when the hide at Forest Farm was destroyed, where I spent many hours working on the Kingfishers just a couple of months ago. The hides […]

However it can affect subject matter, and there`s […]

Update – 15 May 2019

  With signs of Spring in the air, in between some typical bad British weather of course!, now is the time to think about taking advantage of the outdoors to improve or even begin some photography for the first time. Spring and summer often offer a lot of wildlife activity, with the added bonus of […]
