I have always loved watching wildlife. I spent the first two years of my life in a second floor flat in Manchester, northern England. A Tawny Owl roosted on a branch outside our window. My mother says that even as an infant I would watch it and that my first spoken word was “bird”. My family then moved to Berkshire, where I grew up and began to find my own wildlife, firstly in the fields behind our house, later at local gravel pits. Now living in Oxfordshire, photographing wildlife has to fit in around my own family and my work. Though some say that it happens the other way around.
The natural world is beautiful, fragile and disappearing rapidly. I am no professional photographer, the pictures here are just a personal record of some of my encounters with wildlife, from all around the world.
