Welshie's Profile

706px_uhu_muc

Retired Police Officer. Had a life-long interest in wildlife. Recently taken up photography and keen to learn. Not really a twitcher, but someone who appreciates nature and tries to capture photos of what's around me.
I grew up in rural Shropshire, but spent 35 years living and working in London.
Have been a keen falconer for 20 years and if I have a 'speciality', it is Birds of Prey. Spent 5 years as Police Wildlife Officer for North East London.
in December 2016, I moved to Ireland, where I am surrounded by beautiful countryside and am enjoying a quieter and less stressful life.

County: Essex
