Short Eared Owls at Parkgate

The high tide at Parkgate on the Wirral was a whopper this weekend and flooded the whole of the salt marsh. It is an amazing spectacle to witness. As the marsh floods, the small mammals cling to higher ground, reeds and even the promenade wall to escape the water, but this of course makes them vulnerable to the raptors that swoop in for the feast.

It was the closest I have ever come to watching Short Eared Owls hunt, and a memory I will cherish for a long, long time.

Blood Moon

Picture from that incredible blood moon on 28th September.


Hit and miss with the settings, but took this one at f/10 ISO 800 with a 4 second exposure time.

A Most Handsome Duck

A trip to RSPB Burton Mere with my youngest and our cameras this morning. This was my favourite shot of the day, a gorgeous Tufted Duck in lovely tranquil light.

Sold!

I sold my first picture a few weeks ago. It was this arty looking Swallow.


It was just by chance than someone spotted it on twitter and asked to buy it, so I wont give up the day job just yet, but it did feel good to know that someone liked it that much.
