A wildlife enthusiast for over 40 years, enjoying all aspects of wildlife leaning mainly towards the birds but also taking in Butterflies and Dragonflies. I get my pleasure from just being out and about and being grateful for those days I do get in such a busy life. I have traveled to a few places in England and abroad in pursuit of birds with The Gambia being the place I love to birdwatch the most.
I have tried all kinds of photography equipment Digiscoping, Videoscoping Compact Cameras, Bridge Cameras within my birding life what I am settled on at the moment is a Panasonic FZ1000 a good all round camera from distance to macro. I also use a Sony A6000 with various lenses mainly the E55-210mm F4.5, with a Raynox DCR250 on occasions. I have recently bought a Sigma 70mm Macro with a EF (Canon Fit) to E mount adaptor (June 2016) hopefully to get the up close shots which I Think the FZ1000 falls down on
I started writing my wildlife sightings on a Blog site from 2005 and the first site can be seen at surfbirds on Brookies Diary where you can find my wildlife travels from 2005 to 2009 with of course my early efforts at digiscoping etc etc.
