    DIY wildlife camera & RFID reader

    I thought this site may be of interest: https://mynaturewatch.net/ I doubt the definition etc is very high but since they are cheap to make and Wi-Fi connected they could have other uses such as identifying likely spots for photos and so on. They are also working on a DIY RFID reader that...

    Spent this afternoon with a kingfisher

    I'd normally be photographing professional football on a Saturday afternoon but with the closedown of the season I had a free day. So I went looking for a kingfisher. This was only the second time I've ever seen one, the previous time was just seconds, this one paid me three visits and hung...

    Banham Beaky Ones - Grounded

    Got in a rare visit to Banham Zoo recently (love it but live nowhere near) and of course we went to every bird show. It is easily the best zoo based bird show I've been too (as in - excluding actual BOP centres) but I still find birds in flight a tad challenging. Don't get a lot of practice to...

    Sing

    This little Robin was singing its heart out for us today in Greenwich Park. My hand was only inches away from it as it took some birdie treats from it. I swear as I whistled a little tune it copied back. Probably not intentional, but I like to think it was :)

    The Joy Of Flight

    Made an impromptu visit to Bempton Cliffs recently. As we were at the top of the cliffs opportunities for seeing flying puffins were few. I spent a lot of time spotting for my wife and others - they got the shots of puffins, I ended up with none!!! Just my luck, but never mind. Was fascinated...

    Wild Couple of birds and an ID please

    I have just started taking photos again after a long break and assorted injuries which hopefully are disappearing. I went to Rye Harbour yesterday as it was a high tide hoping that there would be some wading birds within reach but there was only one in the couple of hours I was there and that...

The "Visitor Centre" remains open until 1700hrs, and the site does not close until 2100hrs. We chose to go there...

    Two Visitors

    Today these two visited our garden at different times. The first, a juvenile Green Woodpecker, is a fairly regular visitor: 1. Green Woodpecker The picture quality is not as good as I would have liked as it was taken through the class of our conservatory at the rear of the house. I know that...
