Somehow a whole year has passed by since I last posted on this blog! Hopefully, any regular visitors will have noticed that I haven't completely abandoned the website though and will have seen some of the new photographs that I have uploaded during the past year.
The last twelve months have seen me move from the East Midlands to Norfolk, to start a new job working for the British Trust for Ornithology, and welcome a new four-legged friend into my life. My new profile photograph (below) reflects this change and shows me with my camera on my back playing with Amy on Titchwell Beach in Norfolk. She is a wonderful dog to take along with you when out photographing for the day as she is very patient and will happily wait by my side every time I stop to capture an image. She can make life a little challenging though as every time I bend down to get a better angle on something or to photograph something close to the ground, she sees that as an invitation to be fussed!

Most of the new images that I have posted in the past year are Norfolk related - seals photographed mostly at Horsey, waders photographed along the north-west Norfolk coastlines and sea/sandscapes. I am currently processing some of the images I haven't had chance to work on yet (I will finish the seabird images from last year's trip to the Shiants Isles!) and am busy looking for new photographic opportunities (that don't include the very photogenic Amy - believe me I could add a gallery just of her!). So, look out for images of spring flowers coming soon and updates to the American albums when I return from my upcoming trip to help out with the Delaware Shorebird Project again. Oh, and the moth trap will be coming out again soon too!

I also promise to try to keep this blog updated a little more regularly than I have done lately!
