Lapwing in Flight - Filmed at WWT Slimbridge
Welcome to something new! Over the next year or so I am going to be working hard to get my newest project 'Greenshank Productions' off the ground. I won't say too much now but as my interest in Wildlife Conservation grows, my ambition to find new media platforms to give nature a voice increases. I am going to be producing a lot more film footage alongside my photography and will hopefully be able to launch my new project properly soon.
For now, here are some photographs I have taken alongside the two short clips shown above. Winter is a beautiful time of year to get out and photograph! It may seem that the cold, the strong winds and for some, the snow may be the worst time to find wildlife as they should all be hidden away in the warmth or in a deep, deep winter sleep. But I assure you winter is buzzing! Migrant birds such as Lapwing and Bewick's Swans are regular winter visitors and will not come over quietly nor under the radar. Lapwing, along with other bird species like Golden Plover will put on huge murmuration spectacles like those of the Starlings that are most popularly witnessed on the Somerset Levels. And it isn't just the wildlife but as the landscape changes as the weather turns colder, more and more exquisite scenes unfold and if you are lucky enough to live in an area with good snow fall then all the better. Snow can be both fast and exciting or relaxed and romantic and gives the landscape and wildlife photographer endless scope for winter inspiration.
