Rut season

Hi, after  a disappointing trip up to Westleton Heath & over Minsmere to see the Red Deer rut.....well what turns out spending so much time trying to even see any Deer's, let alone photographing any action. I have never known or seen so few Deer around in this area. I think they must have got trigger happy with the recent cull. I wandered around and see just a few distant Stags & handful of Hinds.

After 4 years since my last visit to Richmond. On Monday I paid a visit to the park. Even there seemed quite quiet. A lot less deer than the previous years. Anyway managed a few nice shots.3 stags put on a bit of a show. Rutting its self was bit scarce although we did witness some action. The grass was just too long to get clear rutting images. Anyway some nice portrait shots were had.  Put a handful up in flickr.

Thanks, Ray

Short Eared Owls

Sadly not a winner on Wildlife Photographer of the Year this time but possible chance of the peoples choice. What ever this means.

Been busy capturing images of the local Short Eared Owls I have seen on the crouch estuary last week.  Managed to get a few more shot of Suffolk's heathland specialities Dartford Warbler & Stonechats. Sadly still not seen any Whinchats this year but will keep trying.

Wildlife Photographer of the year

Had an email last week saying I have been shortlisted to the final rounds and a request to submit the High res & original images of two pics I submitted for Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 competition.
All the years of photographing wildlife, this year is the first time I actually got round to entering a competition. To be shortlisted in this huge event is an honour itself considering well over 50,000+ entries worldwide get considered every year. Will keep you posted.
