I was born in Cornwall in 1957 and from the age of 14, I have been interested in birds. This borders on obsession at times especially when there is a new bird or county tick to be seen, ask my wife Wendy. In the past I have found several firsts for Cornwall but none recently, mainly because I have limited time to get out and about and end up chasing other peoples' birds.
I used to take photos [mainly slides]until it became too exspensive but now the digital age is here I have started again.
The equipment I use is a Nikon D80 with an 80-400 VR lens, but now that I have been using it for 18mths, I hear myself saying I need a bigger LENS !!! I normally shoot in RAW mode. The photos I have posted are my best efforts so far.
