Birding was a number one passion and began well before either of us was old enough to even hold a camera!

The possibilities for bird photography now that we have prime lenses has opened a whole new obsession as even with so-called 'big' lenses you still have to get reasonably close to the subject for a decent image! Folks tend to assume big lense are like the Hubble Telescope and sadly they are not!!

Again patience and endurance (sat still and silent in mobile and pop-up hides in heat and cold) stealth (creeping through spikey heather or up to the knees in mud and cold water) bent double leaning out of car windows, camera resting on a bean bag and just occasionally in comfortable purpose built hides with a brew in one hand and a sandwich in the other!

Ian says: 'The really good point with many birds is they will respond to bribery in the form of food left out in suitable places for them to find - you would be surprised just how many bird species can be attracted if you have the right bait in the right place!'........

Nice pics but the site is poor to navigate around. Needs a lot of work to improve things.

Thank you Pauline and Ian for all you advice today at Martin Mere. I hope I did not take up too much of your time. This site is simply wonderful and I am in awe of your photographs. Simply breathtaking. Your site is now bookmarked. Cheers!
