This week I thought I would show some of my bird photos. I was never really ‘into’ birds before I came to university. Since starting however, I love nothing more than sitting down to watch and photograph birds!

PLEASE DO NOT PIN ANY OF THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ONTO PINTEREST. THANKS!

I managed to get this grey heron in two different places this day. It was also the first time I had seen one at such a close distance (I was only about 5 metres away!) and first one to photograph!
This photo of a starling murmuration was taken in really low lighting so I converted it to black and white and really loved the old look that it has.
These starling photos were taken at the Stone Henge… Yep! The first one won a small university competition and got into their exhibition, and the bottom one won me first place in a Waterstones photography competition! The second is a little too bright and edited, but I have the actual winning copy on my hard drive – I’m just too lazy to swap it!
Well, there you go! As of now, birds are my favourite thing to photograph though insect/macro is a close second! I’m dying to get photos of kingfishers – I’ve only ever seen two and they were both blurs!
