More bird images added to Bird Gallery 4 which includes Barn Owl and some beautiful
sunset pictures of birds returning to the roost.
It’s such an awful day weatherwise that I’ve spent it putting up a recipe and images on
how to make your own fat / suet treats for your garden birds in the Articles area.
Finally pulled my finger out and added more images to the galleries. Check out Birds
Gallery 4 for new images of Siskin, Red Kites, Brambling and others and also Birds
Gallery 5 for images of Linnets Buntings and Warblers and much more. Also added to the
Butterflies gallery and finally added an image to the Landscapes Gallery. Enjoy!
Following feedback I will be changing the mixed Bird Galleries into specific galleries
for certain families of bird and will be adding lots of new images within the next week or so.
Please excuse the mix and match while this is going on and the existing galleries are
dissolved into the new ones.
I have added a Lastest Images gallery to make it easier to find my latest work. Bird
Gallery 3 has now been dissolved into the bird category galleries.
I’ve been really lucky to have a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker visiting my garden. I’ve grabbed
a few shots which have been added to the Latest Images gallery.
Bird Gallery 2 has now been split between the bird category galleries. I’ve also added more
recent images including Foxcub, Jay, Swallow, Whitethroat and another Lesser Spotted
Woodpecker image. Hope you like.
Just tried to put more images in the latest images gallery and the software has had a spasm.
Please bear with me while I try to work out how to get it to deal with so many images. At this
point Xara Web Designer 6 is top of my hate list. Doh!
I’ve managed to resolve the issues with the web software and have had to split the site
into two parts. This should be invisible to any visitors, however you may find the odd broken
link while I tidy it up. Please feel free to mail me and let me know if you find problems.
I’ve also removed the last Birds generic gallery and moved the images into the specific
More images added to the Latest Images Gallery - including Little Egrets, Wheatear
Linnets and Knot
More images added to the Latest Images Gallery - including Golden Plover, Migrant Hawker,
Gulls with Mussells and lots more..
Finally got round to adding some of the first images of 2012. I hope this keeps certain people at
work who tell me off for not updating happy!. Lots added to the Latest Images Gallery - including
Barn owl, Bittern, Water Rail and Hares to mention just a few. Still more to come which I intend
processing and posting over the next few days. Enjoy!
More images added to the Latest Images Gallery - I’ve been trying hard to get Barn owl
shots and have been relatively successful. Also of note, after messing up a chance of getting
some great Stoat shots (no, we don’t get it right every time!) I went back to try again and had a
fantastic day sqeaking at stoats. Try it, it helps! Also managed my first Chiff Chaff of the year
whilst hunting for those elusive hares. Hope you like.
As always if you have any feedback then either contact me via the mail link or better still use
the guestbook, all comments appreciated.
I’ve had lots going on recently. So many images to process and so little time. I’m sure any
photographer will be familiar with this. This update I have added lots of wood land bird images
along with some great shots of a Sparrowhawk from my garden and images from a recent Dungeness
trip (Wren, Marsh harrier, Sparrowhawk). All in Latest Images Gallery
Next update will include images from the Black Headed Gulls colony at Rye Harbour, Whitethroats
with nesting material and images that show just how much the birds in your garden LOVE live
Fingers crossed also for entries I’ve submitted to the British Wildlife Photography Awards
Finally uploaded an article about my trip to the Isle of Mull in June this year. Hopefully
anyone interested in visiting Mull will find the article helpful. Browse to it via the
Articles area in the menu bar or jump to it via this link - Mull Trip Report
Images added to the Latest Images Gallery including Badgers, Fox and pictures
of the juvenile Jays that have been visiting recently.
Images added to the Latest Images Gallery including Blackbirds, Robins and a couple of
landscape shots from Rye. Also a couple of macro images taken in the recent sun.
I’ve been concentrating on my garden birds again (no surprise there!). I always put out
plenty of food and this year, due to the very poor acorn crop, I’ve been adding peanuts
scattered on the ground for the hungry Jays that visit. As you can see this is quite
successful. I’ve also been putting out apples again and was very pleased to get a
visit from a feamle Blackcap. Go to the Latest Images Gallery to seem them.
My first images have been added to the Latest Images Gallery. A trip out on new years day
saw some luck with the Barn Owl and a reasonable sunrise. Shame about the idiot that brought
a dog into the hide. IT’s called a HIDE for a reason, thanks for being selfish.
