Birds                    Orchids                   Butterflies

I have always loved birds, whether it be travelling to the opposite end of the country to connect with a lost vagrant, admiring the spectacles of migration unfold, or simply watching a family party of Long-tailed Tits in the garden.  Much more challenging than the macro methods of stationary orchids or butterflies, a collection of some of my better images of UK birds are displayed below.
