We often complain that we do not get enough time out to explore nature, yet we do not realise that we are surrounded by many creatures on a daily basis.
I have set myself the quest to find as much life in my garden as I can. There is no end date to this quest and I will continually update these pages with new findings.
I will also take photographs of as many as I possibly can. The smaller creatures will be a challenge as at present I make do with either long distance shots with a 100-400mm lens or using a home built macro lens. Thus apologies if some of the photos are not of the highest quality.
I am by no means a expert on all wildlife and will probably mis-identify some. If you do notice this, I would appreciate if you let me know and I will make corrections.

Most of the birds featured in this gallery was photographed in my garden. Some species are very difficult to photograph in a garden setting, and there are a few photos added purely for illustration.
