Welcome to my Wildlife blog.

This is a photographic diary of my endeavours at wildlife photography which I started five years ago. I have always been interested in wildlife, birdwatching, the environment and the weather. I hope to combine all of these with my other longstanding hobby of photography.
I am not an avid twitcher so most of the images will be from around my home “patch” in South Essex although there will be some from holidays and other trips. I may also be inclined to travel to see a bird that particularly appeals to me in some way.
I have recently upgraded my equipment to a semi-pro level DSLR. My camera is now the excellent Pentax K3 having previously used most of its lower range predecessors. I most often shoot these days with a Pentax 300mm DA* or with a Sigma 150-500mm or a specialised lens such as the DFA 100mm Macro.

There is a link to my Flickr photostream on the right.



Addendum – This blog has been transferred recently from Opera which is closing. There are lots of images below in the original blog and if you click on <read the rest of this page> and click on an image it takes you to my Flickr Photostream.

    Hi Catse – yes, preparing for lots of food! Weather now very wet. Have you had any snow or are you still a bit further South than those areas affected?
