Coffee break

I haven't had much to shout about for some time but today after a visit to the dentist for Jacque we dropped in at Pulborough Brooks for a cup of coffee. Of course I just happened to have my camera with me. Sitting by the window that overlooks the feeders this is what I got while drinking my coffee.  First a greenfinch.
 Then a gtreater spotted woodpecker that played hide and seek. She didn't like the sound of the camera shutter and disappeared every time she heard it.
 Goldfinches were in abundance. This one was happy to pose for me.
 Nuthatch prefered the sunflower hearts rather than the peanuts.
This pair of house sparrows is something that is not seen in my garden just a couple of miles down the road, but I am working on it.
While all this was going on a young rabbit was keeping his beady eye on me.

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.
