You need to be comfortable if you are spending long hours in a bird hide (5 Berth caravan) its better than wooden one.

Photographing wildlife in the Charente Being a wildlife photographer in the Charente can be difficult at times but the rewards can be very good if you can find places to go that it.

620A6124620A6124 My morning walks with my dog (Molly the Collie) usually produce something to photograph mammals, birds or insects.


620A6119620A6119 It all depends on the camera setup I take with me. Canon 100-400mm lens and 5dmk 4 or with a 7dmk2. My macro setup is a Canon 100mm 2.8 lens on a Canon m6mk2.

Review of 2019 It’s that time of the year when I take stock of the photographs.
In January I returned to the UK and had a day out on the coast at Meols. I took a few photographs of Curlew using the 100-400 lens and my 5Dmk iv.
The birds were too distant to provide any good detail, but its not always about that.
Before returning to France I photographed some Waxwings along with Redwings feeding on Rowen berries in Warrington.
Back in France and Firecrest is one of my regular sightings when out walking my dog.
February saw me back in the UK for high tide at Meols with my friends to photograph waders
March in the Garden and the feeding station saw lots of activity with Greenfinch, Goldcrest, Willow Tit, Chiffchaff, Black Redstart, Redstart, Cirl Bunting, and Nuthatch, Whilst the rising sun provided a great backdrop. During the day Roe deer would often put in an appearance at the bottom of the garden.

In April with the weather warming up European Green Lizards started to also make an appearance which I managed to photograph before going on holiday to Kefalonia Greece.
It was difficult to find any birds locally where I was staying. On trips out I had some success with Black-Eared Wheatear, Baillon’s Crake and a Moorish Gecko which I found on a wall.

At my friends house a Tree Frog turned up and, in my woods, I managed to photograph an Edible Dormouse.
May and cuckoo have arrived in the valley flying over the garden several times a day.
At our other house I couldn’t resist taking a few shots of the little Owl and Black Redstart.

Back from our Holidays Having got back from our two-week Mediterranean Cruise over two weeks ago I haven’t had any time to go through the images (It wasn’t a wildlife photographic trip) but I did manage some shots.


Our Cruise started from Genova and on to Marseille, Malaga, Cadiz, Lisbon, Barcelona and the back to Savona and on to the UK and then back home to France.

Spain offered the best opportunities with Monk and Ring -necked Parakeets.

Monk Parakeet: Myiopsitta monachus.

Native to South America with a lifespan of 20-30 years established by escaping from captivity
