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.

St. James's Park
Smew - despite later finding out that the two Smew photographed had been pinioned, I still felt it was right to share these photos of such a stunning duck on my blog. I have only had three distant views of Smew previously, so to get close up views was amazing, if slightly overshadowed by the fact their wings are clipped.
