This summer, I was guiding a tour for Natures Images to Fair Isle, a small, remote island just south of Shetland. Fair Isle is an incredibly special place, inhabited by thousands of seabirds and migrating bird species, but only by c.50 people. It is beautiful and wild, battered by winds…

A happy return

Trip reviews | Posted on October 9, 2017

It’s been a while since I ran a trip to wonderful Norway and I must say I missed the eagles and the beautiful fjords in Flatanger. It was good to be back and the eagles didn’t disappoint us in any way. They all looked healthy and strong and they didn’t…

Wild Iceland

Trip reviews | Posted on July 19, 2017

It has been such a long time since I have put up a blog as I have just not had the time between trips to look at any processing. This has meant I have a year’s worth of a back log of images to sort through, a daunting task. Anyway…

Japan – a country full of character

Trip reviews | Posted on May 30, 2017

Japan is one of the most stunning countries I have ever visited, not only from a wildlife point of view but culturally as well.
