A short update on the badgers so far. I’ve been camping out for several hours at a time trying to photograph the badgers and their new cubs. I’ve been quite successful, but I’ll post something about that when I’ve finished the project this year and the cubs have grown a little more. In the meantime, here is a little video compilation showing the cubs as they were a week or so ago.Read More
Well, it’s been pretty busy to be honest. I won’t mention the weather – oh I just did….and whilst its been cold and miserable, the snow does create some interesting photographic opportunities. I drafted this update a couple of weeks ago, then forgot about it to be honest, so now that spring has finally arrived, I thought I’d better post it before (hopefully), the appalling winter we’ve just had becomes a distant memory. This little Blue Tit stood out so well against the drab, muted colours. This was a bit of a hide first – the Robin usually...Read More
If you’ve followed my ramblings on this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that one particular creature has cost me countless hours of my life planning, waiting and watching. Invariably, this creature has managed to completely avoid me…….until now. Keep coming back because Project Stripey is underway…….Read More

Often, in my first run through, I’ll overlook stuff that when processed, is pretty decent. I think in the past I have immediately deleted images that I ought to have kept and reviewed again at a later date. I think I’ll be running through my Finland images for a while yet Anyway,...Read More
Another bonus species that I was hoping to see whilst in Finland was the Great Grey Owl. Our guide, Aari, had been told about 3 birds that were wintering on farmland an hour or so from the lodge, so we set off one day to look for them. It was a pretty cold day and apparently the birds had been very active the day before – and throughout the day light hours, so we were hopeful. Arriving early at the site, it was once again a winter wonderland. All fields covered on fresh snow, no wind, overcast but great light – ideal conditions. Unfortunately, no owls appeared……for...Read More
Hi everyone Per my last post, I thought I’d add some video of a pair of eagles fighting – well sort of fighting anyway as it’s just a minor scrap. I like the HD video capabilities of the MKIV, I just need to get used to doing some basic video editing and sound now Anyone able to recommend any video editing software ?Read More
