I have always had a passion for birds. I moved from field observation to bird ringing, which I have continued throughout my adult life, when my work as a medical doctor permitted! I have always had a desire to photograph the birds that I see in their natural habitat. Five years ago I started digiscoping, but remained frustrated by the difficulty in acquisition of pin-sharp images and flight shots. So, in 2012, I acquired a Canon EOS 7D and a 400mm f5.6 Canon lens. I have not looked back! Nearly all photos on the site are taken with this equipment and more recently a 500mm f4 lens.
