Winter Birds

Winter Birds



We really don’t have too much snow down here on the Devon/Cornwall border, so a covering of the white stuff was a bit of a novelty on two separate weeks in March.

I could have panicked and ran around with my long lens and end up photographing nothing at all or just stay in the garden ,put out some food and a few props and see what common species turned up, which is what I decided upon.

The right approach I think.

His love of birds and the wildlife found in the world around him has inspired him to try to capture them in photographs as they go about their everyday lives.Living near Launceston on the (Devon side now) Cornwall/Devon border allows plenty of opportunities to visit many beautiful locations, favorites being the North Cornwall coast, the Lands End area and the Exe estuary,as well as traveling further afield both in Britain and overseas.
