Harry's back

Harry's back and has found a friend. Other than a couple of fleeting glimpses of him at Christmas nothing has been seen of him since last October. I knew he was around but with no sightings until last night when he appeared. Jacque and I spent a good half an hour snapping him getting quite excited running round the garden. He cleared up the meal worms so I put a second helping out.

These he devoured quite quickly as though he hadn't eaten for days which raised my suspicions. During the evening I had also set up a infra-red video which showed that in fact I have two hedgehogs in the garden and the fuss that Harry was making it looked as though they had just met. I haven't yet worked out a way of putting the video on my blog . I shall see what tonight brings.

About Me

My photo
Evacuated during the second world war to a village in Yorkshire where I lived in the home of a good photographer for more than five years who taught me the basics and a great deal about nature. Well past retirement age I have been a wildlife photographer for more than 30 years. Red Kites have been my speciality for much of this period. I did spend several years snapping wheelchair athletes and organizing the British Road Race Championship. In the year 2000 I was awarded a distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for my portfolio on wheelchair athletes. Most of my pics are digital, using Sony cameras and Sigma lenses. I used to spend many weeks each year with friends in Wales which is close to the Elan Valleys where I got many of my raptor pics. I now get these pictures more closely to home, specially red kites and peregrines. I support my pension by selling my pics, cards, coasters, fridge magnets and key rings etc. at craft fairs, something I wish I had done much earlier in life. I give illustrated talks to clubs and societies on wildlife and other branches of photography that I have been involved in.
