Back to Blogging!!

Wow I cant believe it is October since I last posted on my blog, no excuses really other than we have been setting up a new website and I have been concentrating on building up a very nice following on my facebook wildlife photography page, if you are interested in taking a look the links are below.

My last trip out with the camera was one of my favourite sites, RSPB Leighton Moss. We had taken the long drive up to hopefully see the Otters and Marsh Harriers, and hopefully some of the Red Deer. Sadly we only got to see one of the three, but we had some great views of a Male Marsh Harrier and two females, not close enough for great Photos, but it was magical watching them hunt over the reed beds.



lost of flight action with the Greylag Geese



rarely get a chance to get Lapwing shots as they are rarely still, but this one posed nicely


Common and noisy, but I still love photographing Greylags


Lots of Black Headed Gulls, and lots of bickering going on


Another bird I really enjoy seeing in front of the camera are Pheasants, lots of lovely vibrant colours


Great Crested Grebe, just surfaced from a feeding dive


Cormorant perched a drying out


A great few hours spent up in Silverdale, whats next on the agenda.......Dippers!!


  1. Perfect!!!!!! Each are superb too.

  2. Welcome back to blogland Gary, great set of images especially the ones of the Marsh Harrier...[;o)

  3. Wonderful photos Gary ... I don't think I've ever seen a lapwing close up like this.
