Do you know about A ROCHA?

A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection of the natural world. They do this by practical involvement in conservation projects in many parts of the world. I am a keen supporter of their work and believe in what they stand for. The editor of their magazine has been kind enough to include some of my photos in recent A ROCHA magazines "Root and Branch" such as this Bumblebee image.

Bristol's Wildlife

There is a wealth of wildlife here in Bristol if you know where to look. The peregrine was taken from a boat - one of the regular ferries which goes from the Arnolfini/Centre to Temple Meads.

A very good way to see wildlife in the Avon Gorge is to go on one of Ed Druit's wildlife cruises which happen about 3 or 4 times a year - go on to the Bristol Ferry website.

Patagonian Adventure. April 2016

A trip to Patagonia in March to April 2016 yielded plenty of new encounters and experiences so I frequently make use of the images from that trip during my talk entitled "Encounters with Wildlife". We spent a week at Estancia Ernestina in Peninsula Valdes watching the wildlife on and around the beaches - sea lions, penguins, owls and orcas hunting on the beaches! After this we joined with a Naturetrek group to see wildlife, including Pumas and spectacular scenery in the Torres Del Paine National Park in the very south of Chile.
