It’s always a great feeling when you see your images in print but even better when they are used as a front cover! The British Birds journal has used my Stonechat image for their May issue. This is such a great informative journal on all things avian and is a must read for any one with an interest.

After wasting 15 minutes trying to find the latest downloads to Canon EOS Digital Photo Professional and the EOS Utility I have finally found them so I thought I would post the link here so people can go straight to them if they are searching google and Canon like I was. The links are through Canon Europe and for a Canon 5D Mk3 but it will work for all your Canon cameras (apart from the 7DII which i will presume they will release an update soon).
Here is the link to the software:
Just choose your operating system and language and all the latest software and updates will magically appear below.

I have just finished an article on how I photographed a pair of Black Redstarts in a Hungarian garden in June. Lots of information and details included for those who are interesting in setting something like this up from start to finish.
The pdf can be downloaded by following this link to my website:

The lighting was difficult to control on this one but checking the histogram kept me from burning out the highlights on the setting sun through the white feathers of this Spoonbill.

I know I’ve got a big appetite but this fish even made me feel full. Its amazing the size of the fish that these Grey Herons can swallow.
