My interest in birds started as a young boy keeping and breeding birds, progressing to bird watching and later on and until the present, taking bird photos. I started out with lower end zoom cameras moving on to digiscoping and then stepping up to DSLR/telephoto lens combinations. I moved from Nikon to a Sony A9 FF mirrorless camera combined with a Sony 100-400 G Master lens last year with disappointing results and have cut my losses and moved back to Nikon. (D500 and f5.6 5-- PF lens) A nice fairly light combination. My flirtation with mirrorless is over for now as I found the mirrorless auto focus system less than satisfactory for small birds.
My interest is in capturing the beauty and behaviour of birds accompanied by the challenge of travelling to all parts of the globe to observe and photograph these amazing creatures. I derive great pleasure from this and from the wonders I see along the journey.
The photos on this website are solely for the purpose of sharing my interest with like-minded people. Many species are duplicated as I just love looking at these birds.
