Attenborough May 2019
Pics from Attenborough on a lovely early summers day. Lots of camera-shy hobbies flying around!
Cley Marshes, September 2006
Cley Marshes as it used to be - by the time you read this, parts of it are probably under water as the sea defences have been changed.
Not an ideal day photography-wise, but some nice views of a kingfisher and swallows getting ready to head south.
Chichester and Fishbourne
This is my attempt at some solo birdwatching, which is to say, going out on a cold, windy day, take a lot of photographs, and hope that I can make them out when I'm back somewhere warm. A couple of short movies I took on the day didn't make the cut - I took them more to get the sounds of the Redshank warning calls, but all I got was the sound of the wind.
To cut to the chase, there's a lot of Redshank here, along with Dunlin, Oystercatcher, and Grey Plover. Oh, and the usual Mute Swan, gulls etc.
Norfolk Birdwatching, December 2004
A trip to Norfolk, looking for King Eider at Titchwell, Rough-legged Buzzard, and Lesser Yellowlegs at Stiffkey. We got the latter, but the light was so bad that hardly anything came out from that leg of the trip - which is a shame, as we got some great views of Redshank on the banks of some of the channels.
Titchwell was pretty good for Robins - they came extremely close - and some waders, but the light was variable and so action shots were right out.
Old Moor and Potteric Carr, November 2004
The weather wasn't great, so the usual Winter problem of dark, blurry photos reared its head again.
Having tried digiscoping in my previous trip to the inlet, I thought I'd give it another shot - not great, but interesting to play around with. I also took a few snaps of the flora of the area.
Pagham Harbour, July 2002
A short sequence of images from the beach at Pagham Harbour.
Pagham Harbour, August 2001
Pagham Harbour's just north of Selsey Bill, or about 7km from Chichester as the crow flies.
The first time I went there I walked the scenic route, walking down the canal and then deciding to just keep going until I got to the sea. Needless to say, this time we went a more conventional way, on a bus!
