  1. Given the opportunity I'd love to be based in a camp or lodge offering photographic tuition to guests. It's not that far removed from what I'm doing now, but instead of me having to go out and find the guests that would be someone else's job. Failing that, I'd go back to guiding. But, as @Peter Connan said, it would be contingent on finding a way to involve my family so that we weren't continents apart.
  2. Yellow Billed Stork Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana. May 2017
  3. African Openbill / Open Billed Stork Okavango Delta
  4. Reed Cormorants Chobe River, Kasane, Botswana
  5. African Fish eagle. Chobe River. May 2017
  6. These were taken by the lagoon beside Khwai tented Camp in the Okavango Delta. It was strange to see hippos out of the water in the middle of the day, grazing like cattle
  7. Not that tiny, but a baby none the less
  8. and still 6 months to go. You're setting the bar high for 2018
  9. @offshorebirder Yup, razorbills, 3 kinds of tern, eiders, kittiwakes, Yellow legged Gull, Herring Gull, Black headed Gull, Cormorants, Shags as well as puffins and guillemots
  10. Thanks @Tdgraves @TonyQ It's been a struggle to get there. Especially when I see others sailing past 200. I just need to get out more.
  11. @xelas The puffins can usually be found on the Farne Islands from mid May to mid July every year. They won't avoid you. The best time is probably from mid June onwards. The weather is usually better and they are bringing sand eels back to the burrows so the photo opportunities are better too. If you want to think about a GTG there next year you can count me in. Just don't pick a Bank Holiday weekend. Mid-week is much better as it is usually less crowded.
  12. Let's hope it's 'fake news' although I wouldn't put it past Mugabe and the Chinese to do something horrendous like this. Can you imagine? Who do they think would go anyway. If it's aimed at Chinese tourists better to build it in Asia. Africans? unlikely. Western tourists? no way. Mugabe & his cronies? Aren't they already living in Disneyland?
  13. is this for real? or a wind up? Surely no-one could seriously consider this. Those costumes in the Vic Falls heat.
  14. #101 Blackbird (Terdus merula) My garden, Suffolk, UK. June 2017 This year's crop of cherries is better than previous years, but it looks lik eI'll have to hurry as the blackbirds are already helping themselves. Male Female
  15. Guillemot, with a sand eel
