I have been Bird watching for around 5 years and like the photography aspect of it although i’ve always had a camera since around 16 years old.  Luckily I live in a part of the country where wildlife is in abundance and on my doorstep literally!

Where I live we have Rspb Dearne Valley (Oldmoor, Edderthorpe, Bolton Ings, Wombwell Ings, Adwick wash lands and Garganey Trust Broomhill Flash but also being central in the country 2 hours or so to the coast.

This site is dedicated to the images captured while out and about with a couple of good friends John Seeviour and Alan Whitehouse, although anyone who’s into birding / twitching probably know John Seeviour who’s been birding since the 60’s.

On this site you’ll see images of my diverse interests from Aviation Photography, Wildlife and various other subjects that I find interesting.

Also there are a few images that I have had shown on Calendar News Weather photos with Jon Mitchell and team.  I hope you enjoy and if their are any images you are interested in please drop me a line. These pages are going through a redesign so any problems please contact me.
