I am a third-year student studying Mathematics at the University of Surrey and have always had an interest in wildlife photography. A few years ago I raised £500 for the RSPB by selling greetings cards with my photos on and won the Thomson Habitats Photography Competition.
The Lodge, Sandy is probably my most visited RSBP reserve. These photos are two of my first taken with my current camera. Both were taken on the feeders at the entrance to the reserve at a reasonable distance. The first is a Coal Tit and the second is a Nuthatch - both common birds on the reserve, but still a joy to see.
Poor quality again, but another special moment. We (my family) were lucky enough to witness the fledging of many baby blue tits from our nest box early on 1st June. It's a shame we haven't been as successful this year (2011) with our new camera nest box.
