Birdlife

I have had a particular interest in birdlife since being a young boy growing up in Yorkshire.  I still get great pleasure from watching the birds and their behaviour on my doorstep.

As well as my camera kit, other essential items to pack on my travels are a pair of binoculars and a bird guide.

I like to take bird portraits that emphasise  the bird's own individual characteristics and adaptations be it a Great Dusky Swift clinging to the rock face of a waterfall, a  Kingfisher catching fish in its dagger-like beak or a Nuthatch creeping vertically down a tree trunk.

 

This gallery consists of a mixture of species from both home and away.
