A local farmer tipped me off about a Barn Owl seen quartering his uncut field,after a few early morning and late evening visits I managed to capture a few images of this wonderful bird,I have posted a few of my better images below. I hope to return soon to try and capture some more images of this photogenic bird.

Swallows of the Sea.

The Common Terns down at Preston Dock,so photogenic and a pleasure to watch.I definitely will be returning to try and capture more images of these wonderful birds. In the meantime I've posted a few of my better efforts of these birds for your enjoyment.

Little Brown Job as some birders call a small group of birds,the Whitethroat being classed in this group,but I don't agree I think it's a wonderful bird that is so readily overlooked by so many birders. I hope my images make people change their mind about this wonderful bird.

There had been signs that WATERVOLES had populated a small stream north of Preston. Unfortunately this was aprox 200yd's from houses and 500yd's from a pub.An early start was called for and I arrived on site at 5.30 am and was lucky enough to see five of these endangered animals.Iwas packed and away by 7.00am before most people had woken from their slumber.I've posted a few images for your enjoyment.

After aprox 20 hr's watching these magnificent birds a few images that i'm very pleased with,image 5 is heavily cropped to show a more dramatic effect.Thursday wasn't without incident as the large female chick fell out off the nest.Thanks to P.C PLOD and ANDY from Turbary Bird of Prey Sanctuary the situation was soon under control and the chick is off for a few day's holiday berore being reunited with it's parents
