I've been interested in natural history, particularly birds, since I was a young boy. After many years birding, which started in North Wales where I grew up, I developed a passion for wildlife photography. That passion is still burning bright approximately 8 years later. These days I live and work in Lincolnshire and would class myself as a casual weekend photographer in the attempt to juggle work, family and friends. For me, natural history photography is a way to step aside from the stresses of everyday life. My main photographic targets are birds and insects and I like to capture subjects in detail but also in the context of their habitat and behaviour. Please visit my main website at

A welsh tern colony

Published August 24th, 2011

Last month I spent a few days in North Wales; my old hunting ground. The aim of the trip was to catch up with family but I made sure I packed the camera and on the second day of the trip managed to get out to a tern colony on the island of Anglesey. Light was good with very thin whispy white cloud so conditions for capturing flight shots of white birds appeared promising. After studying the bird's movements as they left the colony, headed out to sea and returned with fish, I positioned myself in a suitable position to capture returning individuals with food. The session produced a number of images; of which this one was my favourite. This image can be seen in my portfolio.
