207/365 BBC Wildlife Magazine published image


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 image is of a group of Sanderling on a very windswept beach on South Uist, Outer Hebrides taken in September last year.
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
Here’s the image:

207/365 Sanderling

026/365


After watching a programme about the plight of the Slow Loris in Java on BBC2 last night, image 026 is of a male Bornean Slow Loris I was lucky enough to see and photograph in a rehabilitation centre in Borneo.  Although protected by law, Slow Loris are cruelly being taken from the wild to be sold as pets in markets in the exotic pet trade.  The ‘cuteness’ of these animals is unfortunately linked to how popular they are as pets and therefore growing supply and demand of these creatures is playing a role with their rapid demise in the wild.  The Natural World programme with Dr Anna Nekaris can be seen again on BBC iPlayer here.
Unlike the Slow Loris in Java this fortunate individual will be released back into the wild.

More images of this species can be found on my agency website here: ALAMY
