News from Gavin Bickerton-Jones Photography


Spent a few early mornings and evenings over at the Old Buckenham Country Park site to check out how the wildlife is progressing. Great to see the male kingfisher using the perch we put out, he visited between 6 and 7AM, first catching and eating a fish himself, then catching 4 more fish which he turned around so it was head facing out (if they eat one they take it head first so the spines and scales go down easier) and flew to the nest each time to give to his young, hopefully see some young soon! The pond is in a lovely spot which catches the sun nicely.

While waiting for the Kingfisher, the Barn Owl was hunting successfully, taking plenty of short tailed field voles back to the nest box, so hopefully we will see some Owlets soon!

There are now loads of Swallows and House martins about, diving in the ponds and taking the many flys and gnats around. Difficult to photograph as they move so fast!

And there is always the ever present Swans as well!

It really is turning into a mecca for wildlife and a joy to watch the daily developments.

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 ! ...
