Red Kite in Chilterns


We did a detour en route to Bath to photograph the red kites around the Stokenchurch area. Amazing birds - sometimes a dozen in the sky at once - well worth a visit.
This is from one of the small jpeg file so will post the best of the conversions later.

Hard winter to come?


If the old adage is true, with the hedgerows full of berries this autumn, we are in for a harsh winter.
Good news for those like me that like winter frosts and snows, but not so good for the wildlife.

Iceberg beach Jokusarlon


Started looking back on the many photos I took in Iceland in February and have never processed or printed.
I remember being so overawed by this beach that found it very difficult to settle and compose pictures.

Puffin on the Farne Islands


Everyone else's puffins seem to be able to get their sand eels in a tidy row while mine had them all in a mess - some heads towards me and some tails but I did like the bit of movement on the wings and the glancing light.

Blue staircase


I have quite a collection of coloured staircases. This one was taken recently in Edinburgh at their discovery centre near the Scottish Parliament.

With all this year's rain, should be some giant pumpkin's around for Halloween.

Rufous-tailed hummungbird


Last one from Ecuador - the complete catalogue of birds is now accessible from my website but this is my favourite - mainly because I have knipofias growing outside my study window in Cambridge but the most exotic species I have seen on them here are goldfinches

Spider from Ecuador


Can anyone identify this orb-spinning spider seen in Ecuador - in open land west of Quito.

Cloud Rain Forest

It was the wet season on the east of Quito and we certainly saw a lot of clouds and rain.
