This years highlights
Its almost Xmas and the weather has been terrible for weeks, with rain most days the ground is saturated and the rivers have all swollen. Wildlife photography is almost impossible here at the moment, with no subjects to photograph I decided to build a more permanent hide at the woodland edge where I photograph the Tawny owls. The landowner has kindly given me permission so hopefully I can spend some more time there and see what else there is to offer.
This year I have found myself mainly working on one site with the Owls rather than chasing all over the place for different birds, this has at times been just as hard work but the rewards are far greater and more satisfying knowing that its all your own work. Also by putting in this time you get the chance to change things when things are not quite right, of course this is not always possible at sites where there may be other birders/photographers etc and if was a day trip i would nearly always come home thinking "I wish I could have changed things slightly"
This year I intend to do more of the same and will concentrate on the same site and hopefully improve on the images I have already taken.
