I started a new job with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust recently as a Wildlife Support Officer and although it’s only part time, what with training days and getting up to speed with how things work, there’s not been much time for posting material on here. In addition I’ve started shooting ‘RAW’ images which has meant much more post image processing than I’ve ever been used to so more time on the old laptop …. hehe sounds like I’m making excuses for not posting doesn’t it?! Well having come so far with the blog I do start to twitch a bit if I go over a week or so without posting something .. interesting the effect these things can have on your life.
Anyway, ahead of my first day with the YWT my mate Mark invited me over to South Yorks to visit one of the Trust’s flagship reserves, Potteric Carr. It was a beautifully crisp and sunny day and although I’m not happy with the way some of the pics turned out, both pre and post processing, here’s a few reasonable shots – feedback welcome!
……. and here’s a bird you don’t see in the wild unless you’re down under in Australia but unlike many ‘escapee’s’ from bird collections, Black Swans are uniquely pleasing and always worth a snap!
Common but so photogenic, I almost forgot to include these super Goldfinches feeding on seed heads, the name of which escapes me!
