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
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.
Two birds turned up in the garden but at distance, with a bit of luck I will be able to get some better photographs next time.
Western Whip Snake
Found this Western whip snake crossing the lawn at the new house in the Charente
To get the shots I had to use 500m with x 2 converter on a 7Dmk 2
they could be sharper but they are what they are.
Need to set up a hide in better light to get better shots
On the morning walk with the dog I always take my camera as there is always something to see.
The Little owls should have young by now and it would be nice to get some shots of them

A distant shot of a Pine Marten as it was crossing the road.
I am still working through the photographs of the Asp Viper
Asp Viper: Vipera aspis
One of the poisonous snakes in France
I found this Viper crossing the road near my house and had to put it in my shoe so I could take it home to photograph it.
After taking lots of photographs of the Viper I took it down to my woods and let it go.
I have had Brambling in the garden most days, with seven appearing yesterday.
