Lets go photograph a kite

After nearly a year of trying I have finally got this kite to trust me and will now confidently sit on the perch and feel relaxed, This morning it was on the perch for 2 hours 7 min happily feeding and preening 

Oh and I had a quick trip to Wales thanks Ian it just gets better and better

Be lucky :0)

Had a great day with the cuckoo with no twitching hybrid photographers moaning at  us ........

The smartest bird in Oxford

Twit tawoo

Over the last few weeks I've been very fortunate to be able to use a hide in Cwmbran south Wales which has regular visits from a family of tawny owls. The owls normally appear just after dark and give you regular visits all night until an hour before first light. It can be a long night sitting still in almost complete darkness but very rewarding when you get to watch them feed and call to one another. On one such evening i was woken with a kick in the shins thinking the owls had arrived ,only to have Nigel telling me that my snoring was keeping the owls away . My advice is red bull and mars bars and lie to your dentist .

Just proves what is achievable with a bit of patience !!!!!!

Any one wishing to watch or photograph the owls please contact Ian howells
Ian will be happy to help you out with great knowledge on how to obtain your best shots 

Have a good week :0)
