British birds and butterflies


Welcome to my website -  an evolving collection of my photographs of British birds and butterflies. I hope you like them.

The links at the top of each page are the key to the site, so start exploring.


The two indices list the birds or butterflies grouped into families or convenient groups. Selecting a family from the index will lead to its  webpage with each species illustrated by a thumbnail. Click on one to go to all the photos of that species. Clicking on a thumbnail on these pages will open an enlarged version and give access to a slide show of all the photographs of that species. Return to the index (or hit the back button) to move to other species.

The pictures

The pictures catalogue the birds and butterflies that I have been fortunate enough to see and photograph. I have not added much text or description to the picture pages; I am not a great enthusiast of captions, preferring to let the pictures speak for themselves. I have, however, often added information about where the pictures were taken or about practical issues or other points of interest.
