VARIOUS APRIL TO JUNE 2017



I have had a bit of a blogging break for a couple of months, so thought I had better put a few images up before the blog gets rusty.
So a number of various images of things I have done during that time.
The Hobby & Red Footed Falcon are only record shots as they were not coming very close, The Falcon was a lifer for me so that was a bonus.

VARIOUS MARCH/APRIL 2017


Once again sorry for the lack of posts over the last month,this is because of a hacker who managed to get into my system and got my banking details. I was very fortunate I realised what was happening and managed to get it frozen just in time, but I can say I had a very close call.
So I have had to clean the whole system including the bios, but it seem all ok now.
So just to say these are a few images over the last month on the few outings I have made.
