Bonkersbon's Profile


Live on edge of North York Moor enjoying a rural location.
Being close to the East Coast we also get winter passage migrants visit.

We live under a large rookery and perhaps the best thing we did was install a wildlife pond . We incorporated a small nursery pool to one side of it specifically for small birds and fledglings.

Water seems such a magnet for a wide variety of birds throughout the year.

Very much enjoy photographing birds and the challenges this presents we have Dippers nearby and one day I ll get something better than a dot on the rocks !

I am Janes other half.

I edit photos for Birdpedia for several categories inc.Seabirds , Migrants , Birds of Prey ,Overseas birds and now newly created Wildlife category.

County: North Yorkshire
