Lots of people have asked me how they can buy colour prints of some of my latest images.

I've put some of the most popular pictures below with numbers beneath each one.

Please contact me for prices of larger prints or specials such as printing on metal or canvas.

These & others on a previous post are all available to buy.

Or 12ins x 12ins at £25 each plus postage of £3:50 to the UK only.

Young Peregrine Falcons take to the wing. North Cornwall coast 7th July 2020.

These Peregrine falcons have finally fledged and can be seen doing their aerobatic displays over the Cornish cliffs.

Strong winds have seen them perfecting their flying skills as they swoop & soar on the updraughts.
At times the gales have been so strong that they've taken shelter under the ledges until a grumpy raven or a frumpy fulmar moves them on.

We're not sure if they've fledged 2 or 3 youngsters although we are thinking more towards the 2 birds as they're often seen together and are looking like a male & a female.

Male Kingfisher, River Camel, Cornwall 2nd July 2020.

Thinking I may have identified a kingfisher nest along the riverbank.

I've seen both male & female in the area & today I watched the male sit on a branch low to the water & make tiny contact calls toward the hole before spending a little time in the burrow.

I'm hoping this is a 2nd brood nest site as I totally missed the first brood due to the "lockdown" during the Covid-19 Coronavirus scare.

I'll be keeping an eye on this place for the next few weeks, hoping to see the adults start carrying fish to the burrow.
Fortunately this is a part of the river where I have a Schedule 1 kingfisher photography licence.

I've also done a short 2 minute video of the bird preening so to view it please click on the link to my YouTube channel.
