Birds & People has won the BB/BTO Best Bird Book of the Year 2013. Summing up, the judges said “we defy anyone to dip into this book and its stunning photographs and not learn or be entranced by something”
Will it ever stop raining? The weather has been particularly depressing this month and I am struggling to remember a January that has been less productive for photography. Last month however one opportunity did open up as a result of lots of water. I visit Dumfries annually and always visit a local weir pool that normally attracts half a dozen Goosanders. When however the river is is spate many more birds appear and on this occasion 31 birds a third of which were drakes fished in the frothing water.
