A Lovely Walk on the Sea Front

Hi folks well the weather was beautiful today so me and Ruth packed a Flask and went to Fleetwood to see if we could find the Snow Bunting a little bird that arrives every year and feeds on the seeds on the ground. We new the location but on the way there are 2 nice bits of drift wood that are positioned just behind the sea wall.

FUJI XT-30 + Fuji 1.4 23mm Lens

I have had this camera for 3 months now and cant believe the image quality and colours this little camera produces so i asked Ruth to model for me. We then sat together and took some more.

Fleetwood has some lovely old buildings and being a old fishing village it has many different statues some old and a few new.

I spent 5 years working at the North Euston Hotel as a handyman.

Then we did a few Crystal ball images and a few together. A great time.

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.
