A few moths ago I visited Swanpool, Cornwall again, and to my delight, I saw a  Mallard duckling out of the water and stood on a water level platform. In order to capture this image, I laid down on the platform after stalking it very carefully and quietly as to not scare it away.  To my delight however, the duckling seemed un-interested and did  not feat my presence.  
The mother was swimming around with her other ducklings are keeping an eye out however she too seemed un-afraid and felt I wasn't a threat to her young.

This is an image from a few weeks ago to complete my habitat project. This Mute Swan Cygnet was out of the water and stood on a ledge which almost level with the water. Surprisingly, the young swan was unafraid of my presence, however its mother was very wary of me getting too close to her offspring. I was very happy to achieve this image as I am very happy with the shallow depth of the field. The background of the swan is reeds and other plant life and I feel this contrasts nicely with the bird.
Thank you for any likes, comments and shares.

Thank you for the response on my Duckling image from Swanpool, I am grateful for the support!
Because of this, I went back as I heard the Cygnets had been born and were out on the pool. Here is one of the images I captured of the young Mute Swans 'Cygnus olor' when it was out of the water and on the slightly raised platform.
At first, the young and parents were very cautious of me being there, however after spending quite some time on the floor they did get use to me and began to accept my presence. The parents were very protective of their young, the father especially. The father would often chase away other species getting too close to the young and actually attacked a Coot which swam too close.
There were nine Cygnets in total, however they will not all survive which is a sad part of nature but happens no matter what.
I am very pleased with this image and shows that the swans are feeding themselves of the algae that grows around the pool. The young swans were very unstable on their legs, however this will develop with time and they will become stronger.
Thank you for any likes, comments and shares and I hope you enjoy this image!

A few days ago I visited Swanpool, Cornwall again, and to my delight, I saw a group of the first Mallard ducklings of the year. In order to capture this image, I had to follow the family unit around the edges of the pool. Understandably, the mother was very protective of her young, and I actually witnessed a Herring Gull trying to take one of the ducklings, the mother however had rushed towards it and saved it.
To capture this image I hid under some trees very near the edge of the pool. The mother had sat on a raised platform which was fully in the sun and her ducklings were swimming around the platform staying close. This duckling swam close enough for me to capture and the lighting was beautiful which topped off the image.
I am hoping to capture a lot more of these very photogenic subjects along with a number of other hatching species such as the swans which are due to hatch any day now.

Myself and a fellow photographer, Alex Greene Natural History Photography (look at his page for some great natural history photography) visited Porth Joke, or Polly Joke as the locals call it on the North coast of Cornwall. This is a place I had not visited before and after visiting with a lecturer I wanted to go right back to try and photograph more of the wildlife there.
Above is an image of a Kitten (baby Rabbit) 'Lepus curpaeums'. The photographer I was with told me helped me get a good shot by telling me the correct way to stalk this subject. The wind was in our favour and by laying on my stomach and crawling towards the subject every time it put its head down to eat, I was able to capture this image. I was able to get very close to the subject as the lens I was using was a 300mm.
I have never photographed a Rabbit in the wild and was extremely excited to have attained this image.

I captured some images of some European Robins 'Erithacus rubecula' last month at Swanpool. The bird were in the Swanvale nature reserve section of the area and were feeding on some meal worms which had been put down for them by one of the locals. I am very pleased with this set on images as the bird has come out sharp and the background colours nicely compliment the colours of the bird.
I fee; this bird is truly beautiful and extremely photogenic. I have some film footage of the birds feeding which I will be using in my habitat project.

The lighting down at Swanpool was beautiful today.  The day was still and warm and it was a great opportunity for some photographs.
I photographed this female Mallard 'Anas platyrhynchos' which was laid on the ground on the grass banking.  I crept up to the subject and laid down, achieving a low angle so some of the grass is in front of the lens.  I really like the colours in this image and the image as a whole as the bird is showing some natural behaviour.

Pied Wagtails' 'Motacilla alba' can be seen all around Swanpool and on Swanpool beach. I was yet to photograph this species as I was mostly focused on the birds on the water, however, this bird happened to land in a lovely position with a small bit of greenery at its feet. The light was hitting the bird beautifully and the background had beautiful colours, so, overall I am rather delighted with the two images I captured. A fellow photographer also advised me on a crop in post processing and I was happy with how it looked.

Having a longitudinal University habitat project means I have to visit my habitat a lot to portray the changes that are occurring from the autumn to winter, winter to spring and spring to summer transitions. Although a lot of the species are the same, I feel I capture them all in a different light. Here for example is a Coot 'Fulica' which was laid on the grass banking next to the pool. I was able to get very close to the bird and captured this head shot of it. The bird unfortunately had an injured foot, however it seemed unafraid of my presence and carried on as normal. The birds are really quite beautiful up close and overall I am happy with this image.

On Saturday I visited the habitat I am following (Swanpool, Cornwall). It was a very quiet day from both fauna and people which I presumed would be from the weather as it was a rather dull day. To my delight, I spotted a Great Crested Grebe 'Podiceps cristatus' in the middle of the pool, I ran to my usual spot at the car park side of the pool and laid in waiting for the Grebe to come closer. I was hopeful it was going to come closer as it seemed to be hunting towards me. Eventually the Grebe came close enough for me to capture on the Nikon 600mm lens. I am very happy with this image as I have wanted to capture this species for a long time after seeing it briefly in the winter. The summer plumage of this bird is beautiful and I would like to photograph the bird more in the following months.
