I gave a lecture at the University of Bangor last night to the Bangor Bird Club. It went very well, a lively and enthusiastic audience and it was great to have some 2nd year university students – studying zoology and ecology – come along to see my Freeze Frames talk. It was my first time…

From October 2015 I will be running two courses; ‘Improving Your Photography’ and ‘The Heat Is…

My last post of a Wes Magee‘s poem combined with my images has had a fantastic response from many of you out there, with hundreds of views. So here is another of Wes’ poems entitled ‘Seagulls’ and one of my shots of these ubiquitous birds. Gulls actually inhabit all seven continents, amazing!! So there are literally…
