Hello and welcome

 

  I have always had a keen interest in wildlife and the great outdoors;

  I was an Angler for over 30 years but gave it up a few years ago to       

  concentrate on photographing wildlife. I now live in Runcorn; Cheshire a

  short distance from the M56 that gives me great access to the Wirral,

  Northwales and Lancashire, with some great countryside on my doorstep

  I don’t have to travel too far in search of wildlife and photographic

  opportunities.

  Some of my wildlife photographs range from as far afield as Cuba,

  Antigua, Saint Martin, Saint Lucia, Dominican Republic,  Tuscany ,

  Corfu, and Turkey.

 

 

 

I now have property in France, deep in the countryside in the heart of the  Limousin; the whole area is a National Park, that’s great for wildlife and I

intend to spend as much time as I can there and invite some of my mates that are into wildlife photography.

My time was once limited because of work commitments, but in May 2011  early retirement was offered to me..................... I didn’t need  asking twice.

Now I am fortunate to be able to get out most days weather permitting that is, and if the all the Jobs allocated to me around the house are completed to a high

standard (Sometimes they are) I am then issued with 24hr pass and now a European Travel Pass.

In November 2017 we moved to France.

Hawfinch again

November 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

There is lots of bird activity in the garden it just seems to of exploded, lots of Blue Tits, Great Tits, Coal Tits and one or two Willow Tits.

Great Spotted Woodpecker, Green Finch, and the Hawfinch.

All this activity is great anything could turn up. It has attracted the local Sparrow hawk looking for an easy meal and made the birds very nervous.
