5.35 AM

Awake again listening to Bryan Ferry as my Ruth sleeps next to me. I love the feeling of the next day, I can’t wait for it to start, a feeling I only ever felt when I was waiting for Christmas morning and a new toy Tank.

So my feeling is of 😊 and excitement, to be like this means so much and I never let it take over to much as I know things can change at a drop of a hat. It is that good I make things with my hands all day and look at the clock to see how much time I have left, still carving my Robin for Christmas or another Bracelet.

Is it rare to feel like this I dint know but is very self satisfying and need to tell my followers of my happiness not sadness to be truthful and honest in my blog.

It is my Therapy to make me better, I told my friend yesterday while driving I feel I don’t need to tell anymore upsetting chapters in my life, or any bad things that happened to me as a child. Yes there is lots more but my wife family and friends know how my life was formed and what I went through.

I find myself clear in my mind and wake up not feeling I have to tell any more stories all true, just a new story of new things, my birds and new adventures me and my mate AL.

Chas told me to me proud if you inspire someone to do what your doing or buy the same camera or Lens as you, learn to wood Carve or copy things you do. As they trust you and want to achieve the same as its pleasing and could make them as happy as you are.

Life will always have a Test, and i have come to understand that and know there are many more to come but waking up wanting the New Day to start is a feeling of total contentment.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
