The rain runs down the window pane. As I ait for the Barn Owl i see my first Snow Drops peeping up little heads all white A smiled back at them and said hello you have made me happy winter is coming to its end.

What makes a Photographer

Wildlife photography is sirt by millions and in todays digital world, is there a true understanding of what it takes to be a true wildlife photographer. The gear is just a small part of what it takes to get the image you are so proud of. As I explained before the Barn Owl is my…

Understanding flight

Ever since I was a boy I wanted to fly, looking at the Kestrel hunt and the Seagul gliding through the sky. The Blue Tit in my garden. My dad letting me hold a baby budgie, then watching it fly was the start of my journey and love for birds and birds in flight. Knowing…

Friday 22 Day of 2021

I wake again at 4am, I make a cup of tea, Ruth sleeps why I sit with a soft glow lighting the room up. I take a reading of my Heart. It is 40 beats a min, my breathing is very slow. I want to write but my mind is blank of any thoughts positive…

Silence is Golden

If you are one of the lucky people to come across a Barn Owl flying gracefully across an open field. Many people say they saw the Barn Owl or heard the Barn Owl but in most cases they have heard a Tawny Owl. If you do get a rare sight of the Barn Owl in…

No 25

What do you see when you look at this Red Shirt worn by a man in 1991. I went through my loft last week and came across this shirt. Any other shirt would have been thrown away a long time ago, but there are certain things in life you hold onto. A very simple Red…

All Dried Up

I feel as though my Brain and memory files have gone its weird I was filled with so many stories and memories back in Aug 2020. Now I find myself without a story to tell something that happened to me. There all gone, was it done intentionally, no I just started to write, and post…

Blackie and Barn

As she came towards me with her wings spread the sun shone threw her feathers. Head and eyes looking into the pale brown grass. Ears listening for the slightest movement. Turning quickly diving fast and seconds before she strikes her wings tuck back her Talons pushed forward and her eyes closed for the kill. She…

Goodnight All

Wishing you all had a good day Stay safe. Tomorrow is another day. Blackie

SONY A764 200-600+1.4EXT

This is outstanding image quality I was waiting for the Little Grebe to surface when this Comorant arrived at sat on a post on the edge of the lake. I couldn’t move and I hafitted my ext on the 200-600 so I had no idea what the images would be like. The IQ even when…

Not Just A Duck

We have a certain perception of the Mallard that comes to us fir food, entertaining us with their laughter. They are such a beautiful bird with stunning colours, but overlooked as just a Duck. The time I have spent filming them has taught me a lot about the life the lead. The life starting out…

Back to the Loft

Moved back to the loft to try some more images of a Bulb. I cant think of anything that looks better than an old bulb with water captured hitting the bulb. Anyone who has any ideas what i could try next then drop me a line.

Monday

Another Nest Box made and a nice Fat Feeder made from Silver Birch.

Coal Tit Magic

So the story goes like this. The Spring came and Blackie put the lovely selection of bird food out for his feathered friends. This included Sunflower Hearts, Niger Seed, Peanuts, Fat balls and Black Sunflower Seeds. As Blackie sat in his Van on his first year at his Static van, he was amazed how many…

Sunday I was Naughty.

I drove my car to a place where I had seen the Barn Owl last March. I parked up and as I approached the field my mouth dropped as I saw the Barn Owl flying low across the field. I was in dreamland and I took some pictures just so I could write my blog.

From The Loft To The Kitchen!

Guess where i am now. Yes its just another image of water, but take a look on a certain site for an image of water droplets and you wont see anything like this and what you do see cost anywhere from £15 all the way to 50.
