I love all wildlife big and small, when spring comes you will find me patrolling the river banks of the river torrent looking for Kingfishers, herons, and in the fields beside it foxes badgers and owls in the woodland. I find it as a challenge to get that perfect shot. its the hunter in me exept im shooting them with a camera, not a gun.
This is me on the river Torrent in my hide and camo gear photographing a kingfisher
The Dipper is a short-tailed, plump bird with a low, whirring flight. When perched on a rock it habitually bobs up and down and frequently cocks its tail. Its white throat and breast contrasts with its dark body plumage. It is remarkable in its method of walking into and under water in search of food.
Swallows are small birds with dark, glossy-blue backs, red throats, pale underparts and long tail streamers. They are extremely agile in flight and spend most of their time on the wing. They are widespread breeding birds in the Northern Hemisphere, migrating south in winter.
