The Fulmar Cliff

The Fulmar is a beautiful bird and one that is always great to watch. We have a few breeding pairs along the Purbeck coast but they are not easy to see when they are on the nest. So, I was quite pleased when I stumbled across a cliff view that made it easy to watch a few pairs.

A Modified Fox

I don't normally modify my photographs, I prefer to let nature sort out the details for me. That said, every now and again I get asked for something a bit different. This picture is just one of those.

The Magic of Houns tout

Of all the walks that crisscross the Isle of Purbeck my favourite is a two mile easy path from Kingston to Houns tout, it is a walk that I n...
