GALLERIES

Our favourite bird families throughout the world, apart from seabirds which have their own section, plus some other wildlife. Most galleries are added to from time to time, since we tend to target our favourites when we organise a trip. Whilst we will never see all the world's Waders, most are here, likewise Herons, whereas some galleries such as Kingfishers and Bee-eaters represent only a small percentage of the existing species.
Each gallery has a date when it was last updated, some are not available as yet but will be later.

SANDPIPERS, PLOVERS & OTHER
SHOREBIRDS/WADERS JUNE 2018.

After seabirds, and Ann's personal favourites, waders feature heavily in all our trips, and we have seen and photographed the majority of the world's species. There are a few to go, including one or two easy ones, plus I update if I get better shots, so it's always worth a browse if you enjoy them.

HERONS, SHOEBILL, IBISES, STORKS
and SPOONBILLS MARCH 2019

Usually easy to capture on camera, (except Bitterns), a very photogenic group. Some, such as many egrets, are found in almost every country, whereas others are quite range restricted or only found on one continent. Not all closely related, but all are long-legged waterbirds. Click on the photo to access the gallery.

DUCKS,GEESE & SWANS
MARCH 2019

I am trying to photograph every species in the world, albeit some in captivity. See how I'm getting on here. We obviously encounter them in every country, but a few are very difficult to catch up with, even in wildfowl collections.

GULLS and TERNS
MARCH 2019

Many of the world's Gull and Tern species, not included in our seabirds pages since all are readily seen on land, and some breed well inland. I have seen all the world's gulls, but a few photos elude me, and all the terns bar Kerguelen and Chinese Crested.

KINGFISHERS, BEE-EATERS and
ROLLERS APRIL 2019

Many Kingfishers are difficult to see, let alone photograph, Bee-eaters and Rollers are usually much easier. We feel we have enough photos of this colourful group to warrant a gallery, although at present no enlarged photos have been uploaded.

DIURNAL RAPTORS and OWLS
NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

A very hit and miss group to photograph, especially owls for obvious reasons, a somewhat random selection of these popular families.

MOTHS IN SUTTON BRIDGE
and ELSEWHERE APRIL 2019

In common with many birders, I have begun to trap moths, and it turns out that my garden is quite a good location. Here are shots of those recorded at home, together with some elsewhere, and a few spectacular foreign species, which will be added later.

CETACEANS-WHALES and DOLPHINS
NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

My main interest being seabirds it was perhaps inevitable that I would build up a decent cetacean list, our Baja trip enabled us to take some photos which were a bit more than a back and fin, some species are represented here.
