The Original ""

 Set up in April 2000, my original website focused on birds of Europe and Great Britain, whales and dolphins in the Bay of Biscay and a trip to Point Pelee in Canada. Those photographs taken between 1994 and 2002 were on film and scanned. Photographs include this white gyrfalcon which spent a few days in Cornwall in March 2000. Click here to view.
