I captured this flight shot, good light allowed faster shutter speeds
The Bewick Swan's were in short supply, one hundred and ninety to be precise. Normally there are three hundred plus, the numbers are down due to the mild winter, a sign of intelligence they fly only as far as they need to escape the weather.

It as been a while since my last post, but here we go again. Lisa and I revisited Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetland Trust concentrating on the wild birds, luckily the weather had improved and we managed to capture a few images, so the next few posts will show some of our successes from our two day visit. The weather was interesting, as day one the temperature was around ten to thirteen degrees Celsius and the second day was minus one to plus three. This change in temperature caused a major change in bird population, basically the Golden Plover and Lapwing pushed off probably down to Cornwall for a warm up.
Sam and Lisa are keen photographers with a particular interest in birds and wildlife in Cornwall. We have always been interested in photography but the improvements to digital cameras have renewed our interest. We hope you will enjoy viewing our photo blog!
Our equipment is as follows: I shoot with a Nikon D300 and D800e Camera and my lenses are a 300mm F/2.8 VR, 2.0 x Nikon Teleconverter,300 to 800mm Sigma Zoom and an 18 -200mm Nikon Zoom. Lisa has a Nikon D90 with HD Video capabilities and the 18-105mm Nikon Zoom. She also commandeers my lenses when needed! I shoot always in RAW format....
