Fox and hedgehogs

Having a bit of a problem with an arthritic knee which is curtailing my movements somewhat. I am concentrating on what is going on in the garden. Over the past few weeks I have recorded a pair of foxes, three hedgehogs, a woodmouse and traces of badger. This led me to put up my trail cams more frequently. Although the pics. are a bit dissapointing due to the weather I am getting good feed-back as to what is about. Look at this picture closely and you will see the eyes of a pair of hedgehogs under the fox. They often appear in the garden together and share the food.


  1. Excellent image, I could not get on with with the remote camera I purchased. Also you Short Eared shots are outstanding

    1. Thanks Sam, I do have trouble with the quality control of the trail cams, they are the cheaper versions. The shots of the shortie were all taken from the car on the side of the road with a 500mm lens.

    1. Thanks Ana, they are costing me a fortune in food.

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.
