New locations always throw up difficulties and this new Bee-eater colony was no exception. A few sessions here provided some nice results and I can’t want to try out some new ideas next year. Here’s a pair in the last rays of the sun.

It is great to see one of my images almost full page in the November issue of the BBC Wildlife Magazine! Check it out on page 58.

The current issue is on sale now from all good newsagents. More information on the current issue can be found here:http://www.discoverwildlife.com/issue/november-2013

It has been a long time waiting but the first Bewick’s Swans of the winter have finally arrived at Slimbridge WWT in Gloucestershire this morning. To mark the arrival I thought this image of a Bewick’s Swan I photographed at the beginning of this year would fit the bill.
