News from Gavin Bickerton-Jones Photography


Word was out that a White Tailed Eagle had dropped down on Buckenham Marshes, so I thought I would go and see if I could catch it in residence. When I got to the small car park a couple there told me roughly where to head for where it was seen last, so off I headed in the howling Norfolk wind. After a 2 mile hike I came across a guy with a scope, and he told me where to look, and sure enough there was the Eagle sitting on a post a fair distance away. It looked massive as it sat there, and was even 'mobbed' by a Marsh Harrier as well as most other Gulls and Crows, then it took off chased by a posse of birds. It was an impressive sight with its big rectangular wings, and well worth the visit.

I got talking to local ecologist Perry who was there to see the Eagle as well, and he was good company on the long walk back telling me about his interests in wildlife and studying insects etc.

RPS Recognition!

I entered this picture of a Barn Owl into a Royal Photographic Society competition not really expecting much, but was surprised to be informed that it was one of the winners and would be the RPS website header for the day! So all day today my photo has been the front page on their website, still cant quite believe it!...

LRPS Award

Pleased to be awarded a Licentiate distinction from the Royal Photographic Society today. To get an LRPS you have to have a panel of 10 images assessed for technical ability and quality at the RPS in Bristol. My panel is above. They go into a lot of detail, and my first application in October was turned down as 2 images had distracting backgrounds and 2 others needed small adjustments, so i re-applied with 2 new images and changes to the other 2 and was succesfull ! ...
