A wildlife enthusiast for over 50 years, enjoying all aspects of wildlife leaning mainly towards the birds but also taking in Butterflies and Dragonflies. I get my pleasure from just being out and about and being grateful for those days I do get in such a busy life. I have travelled to a few places in England and abroad in pursuit of birds with The Gambia being the place I love to bird watch the most.
I have tried all kinds of photography equipment Digi-scoping, Video-scoping Compact Cameras, Bridge Cameras, DSLRs and Mirrorless Cameras within my birding life.
What I am settled on at the moment and what I find myself back with is a bridge camera, I find these cameras more versatile as in not having to carry around various lenses, okay the downside is a smaller sensor but good pictures can be had and with bridge cameras supporting 1″ sensor its not too bad. So as of 2021 I find myself with the Sony RX10iv for general wildlife shots, 600mm lens with a 1″ sensor and along with the Sony ZV1 for vlogging
I started writing my wildlife sightings on a Blog site from 2005 and the first site can be seen at surfbirds on Brookies Diary where you can find my wildlife travels from 2005 to 2009 with of course my early efforts at digi-scoping etc etc.
