A big thank you to Photo Raptors in Spain for the opportunity to photograph the magnificent Spanish Imperial Eagle. I also spent time shooting vultures. When this Griffon spotted the camera it could not resist a selfie!
A Bird Photographer’s Diaries – The Stories behind the Pictures is out now. From almost my first picture in 1978 to this year this book tells the stories and techniques behind some of my best known pictures.
It’s wader time here on the Norfolk coast. The breeding Avocets pictured here are now being joined by passage waders arriving from their Arctic breeding grounds. This is just the sort of image I love to create, strong graphic lines and very simple.
I will once again be exhibiting at the Rutland Bird Fair and will be available to chat about the Norfolk and Shetland Photo Safaris being offered for 2018. Do check out our new Norfolk Photo Safaris website at www.norfolkphotosafaris.com
On Saturday 26th November I will be attending the Christmas Fayre at Sharrington Village Hall near Holt. Signed copies of my various books including Owls for a fiver and Birds and People for £10 will be available while stocks last. Doors open at 10 am.
I now have very limited availability left for photo safaris for February 2017. This is peak month for photographing Barn Owls as they hunt more actively during the day than at any other period in the year.
Our fabulous new ID guide Britain’s Birds is here and will be available from our stand at Bird Fair.
