RSPB Titchwell Marsh in Summer

A Day at Titchwell Marsh This year we’d had a long period of summer days that started with great lighting for photography but quickly deteriorated into poor flat light. Finally we had the promise of a few days of bright, warm weather with clear skies. Plus a predicted low tide early in the day that…


Wakodahatchee Wetlands

For some years now, with family living in Florida we are regular visitors to the Palm Beach area. Each time we visit we have tried to seek out new and interesting places to spot wildlife, particularly the abundant bird life at various times of the year.

As it was well into…


Autumn Bird Watching on the Norfolk Coast

A warm bright late September day, combined with a low tide gave us opportunity for some autumn bird watching. Condition like these could provide the chance of getting some closeups of birds on the low tide line. Plus the possibility of catching some early winter visitors. The hides at Titchwell in the morning are not…
