I've just bought my wife Jan, a new camera in a somewhat lame attempt to develop her interest in 'wildlife' photography so we can both enjoy holidays with a joint interest in birds. I decided to get to know the camera in the field but as all the fields were sodden with persistent rain I needed somewhere with hides. The Tame valley is probably flooded, so I went to Brandon Marsh near Coventry. The majority of birds of interest were on the main island on the East Marsh lagoon so it would be a good test of the new camera in the poor light. The main target was a pair of Garganey. There was also a single Dunlin.
Hi,I've lived and worked in Warwickshire all my life, now retired my lifelong interest in wildlife is now my main hobby. Birding in particular both local, national and in the Western Palearctic region is a major interest. I am very happily married to Jan and have two great kids Rachel and Paul,and 2 beautiful grandchildren
