With a pair of Buzzards having bred in the woodland next to my garden and regularly sitting in the trees nearby, it was a good opportunity to entice them down in front of my hide to try and photograph them. Surprisingly, it didn't take much effort and within less than a week I now have one regularly perching before the lens and a second bird which puts in an occasional appearance. I am having to photograph them at a distance to start with, as they are understandably wary. Hopefully they will get used to the shutter noise and I will move closer as the winter progresses. Here's a couple of the first shots.

I had a very productive trip to Yorkshire with some photographer friends last month. We had an early start to arrive as the sun was rising, this made the Grouse glow in the recently flowering heather. As the day went on I tried to get a wide range of images, from close-ups to in flight and "in habitat" shots. I have just added 79 of them to my main site, a few of which I have posted here..
