CWT Trip

Pics from the CWT field trip yesterday. First image, Green Veined White is slightly out of focus on the wind due to not being parallel, still happy with the image being the first time I've photo'd this species. Unfortunately no sign of any Purple Hairstreaks....
More Seals on Wednesday.

Friday, 15 July 2011


Found a good site for Seals on Wednesday and decided to go back today to get some proper images. Typical that Weds/Thurs were perfect and today was overcast/rain. Didnt take to many images due to the rain and spent most time looking for areas to photo from. Best moment was having a Seal pup in the water about 5 meters offshore. 6 Seals in small group just offshore at one point was also nice, will be back soon on a nicer day.

Photo'd Prince Charles and Camilla on Monday, 2 of my favs here and here
Princess Anne on Monday and Air Day on Wednesday, might post images here if i can be bothered.

Im assuming Grey Seals???

Nothing special but hopefully more to come, hopefully to pursue this into underwater photos...

Lake V Spot Fly

Another Spotted Flycatcher from Lake Vyrnwy, it was pretty close but unfortunately just high up in the trees flycatching hense the dodgy angle. Not much else seen apart from the normal woodland stuff, few Red Kites over and Hobby being mobbed by Peregrine. Heard a Wood Warbler but couldn't see it, let alone photo/video it.

Dont know how frequent posts will be this month, have a couple of Royal visits to photo (Prince Charles and Princess Anne) and a few other boring, non bird photo stuff so might not have many bird pics to add til the pelagic im on in mid August.

If it gets off the ground i have a plan of a project of photo'ing Basking Sharks, I want pics from eye level so I just need an underwater housing (and someone with a boat), so it'll be a while since ive just bought a MacBook Pro so have very little cash. I know some people who can help but i still need £1500+ for the housing, to donate click.....

PS: Thanks to Dave and Martin at Wildlife Photography Across The Water, according to the stats thingy ive had nearly 500 views which came front their blog just in the last month, so cheers
