These are the first ever good photographs that I ever took, back in the days of "Digiscoping" When I used my Opticron scope and Nikon Coolpix. The Tree Sparrow is still one of my favourite photographs even though its a bit noisy. The Stonechat chick was taken at Marazion Marsh and the White-billed Diver was taken at Hayle estuary where it wintered in 2007.

These pictures got to the Final round of judging in International Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009, but unfortunately no further. Getting highly commended or possibly further is one of my personal aims and is one I would love to achieve, but I feel there is along way to go yet. The Rock Pipit was fly catching at Jubilee Pool and the Snowy Owl was taken in February at Zennor. The snowy owl was probably one of the best birds I have ever scene and we were incredible lucky to stumble across when walking back to the car. It was quite happy to sit around about 60 yards away for an hour or so. Brilliant!!
Lookin through my old files for my 2010 entries for Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year and came across these pics which I quite like. The shelducks were taken June this year along with the the Kittiwake (I was try out some different picture styles with that one). The Yellowhammer was taken near Minions.
