out and about

The last few weeks:   Well it`s been the usual unpredictable British weather recently. Hot and occasionally `June-like` (for once), and the next wet, cooler and round about the normal British summer we expect. A bit frustrating at times, but really no different from most other years. However it can affect subject matter, and there`s […]

Update – 15 May 2019

Hopefully all those that attended benefited from the effort of getting up early and being ready to be out and about by 6am. After an abortive attempt to get to Skomer on 3rd […]

Spring and summer often offer a lot of wildlife activity, with the added bonus of […]

wildlife photography

Back on the road: This last fortnight has seen the weather go from snow and ice to our mildest day of the year so far, and we`re still in February! Had the pleasure of coming across wild Otter a few times, Redpolls, Siskens, Redwings amongst the cast of characters. But for me it`s the start […]

Feature on Winter birds: I was happy to have supplied Dan Rouse with a couple of images for her to use with her well-written feature on winter birds in the February edition of The Bay Magazine (Swansea).
