Swan Lake - its not dancing just trying to get up on a wooden platform. The back lighting was just right.

Burghead, Moray Firth - Love this picture - the light, the birds, the harbour wall all seems to work for me..

Red Kite - Gigrin Farm, Wales
Red Kite - Gigrin Farm, Wales

Such a cool bird to photograph - I remember the buzz the first time I visited Gigrin Farm. Took a little time to master getting anything decent with so many birds in the air - key is to focus on one bird and track.

Knot - Snettisham, Norfolk
Knot - Snettisham, Norfolk

Snettisham is a great place to photograph the huge wader flocks - hard to capture the explosion of birds when the flock is spooked.
