Far Ings Nature Reserve and the local wood 24.4.12.

A couple of hours watching the male Marsh Harrier this morning on Barton reed bed saw the bird hunting quite close. Also from the screened hide I noticed a Dunnocks nest in the distant nettles, also later in a local wood a willow Tits nest site. The willow Tits were calling in an agitated voice at a squirrel on the trunk of the tree in which they are nesting. Once the squirrel had gone the female returned to the nest site and the male brought food to her.

Short Eared Owl on the Humber Foreshore. 7.4.12.

I watched this bird at both Chowder Ness and the Humber foreshore today. A shame the light was poor most of the time today.

Goldcrest image set for book publication later this year.

I have now sold this image to Sumersdale publishing.Taken at Far Ings in October 2011, the image will appear in a new photographic book set for release later this year entitled "The worlds cutest animals" It's great news this one is going to be published. It's a favorite of mine which I spent many hours obtaining. I don't have a website as such other than this blog and a flickr account. So to have publishers contact me asking to use my images is very pleasing and flattering and gives me a sense of achievement whilst pursuing my love of birdwatching and photography.
