Welcome visitors


A pair of Mandarin ducks have appeared on the brook beside my home over the past ten days. They really are beauties and are getting along fine with the Mallards, Gooseanders and Moorhens. Isn’t our countryside and our wildlife just amazing?

Like you, I'm new to bird photography although I've always liked the outdoors. I had never seen a Mandarin or an Egyptian Goose until earlier this year and have become fascinated with the variety of birds that can be seen without travelling far.
