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.

Hickling Broad raptor watch point
We stopped for lunch just outside Hickling at Waxham and watched at least a thousand Pink Footed Geese coming in to land in a field. We then stood at the raptor watch point for a couple of hours until dark. We didn't see any cranes but saw about 50 Marsh Harrier, a ringtail Hen Harrier, Short/Long Eared Owl, Barn Owl and two Swallows. We heard a Tawny Owl at Hickling and when we arrived home.
