I am delighted to announce that my image of a Kestrel has been awarded

BIRD PHOTO OF THE YEAR 2014 by BIRDGUIDES.

There were around 325,000 bird images uploaded to www.birdguides.com over the last year, so for mine to be chosen from such a large pool is personally very rewarding.

Well done to all of the runners up and Highly Commended photographers and thanks to Birdguides and their judges for organising this competition.
Full details can be found here:- http://bit.ly/1AmTDKx

This image was in fact one of the very first images I took whilst testing and fine tuning my Canon 7D MK2 camera . It was coupled to a Canon 800mm lens when this picture was taken.

They say lightening doesn't strike twice...

Well this is the second time in seven years that I have had six wild Cheetah cubs in front of my lens.

I will miss this jumping ball of fluff when it finally leaves the farm.

I have not long returned from a few days photographing Dalmatian Pelicans on Greece.

Beautiful birds in my humble opinion...

I am still working on #Kestrel   images. 

I don't find it easy to get this type of image 'critically' sharp. I seem to send so many 'nearly' pictures to the recycle bin...

Enjoy your Sunday...

Just typical ! I sent my Canon 1DX away today to have an "autumn" clean. So what happens this evening? 

The Kestrels that I have been working on for several months decide to fly beautifully towards a setting sun...

Thankfully I had my 1D MK4 to hand which captured this image.

Enjoy your weekends everyone.

I am delighted to announce that this image of a Kestrel was Highly Commended at this years British Wildlife Photography Awards.

The awards ceremony for the BWPA was hosted by Chris Packham last Wednesday. Given that I was photographing in Kenya last week I was unable to attend the awards ceremony in person.

Many congratulations to the winners and to all those who had work commended and thanks to the organisers for their effort and time to organise these annual awards.
