RSPB – The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
Birdguides – UK bird reports and photos – look out for Wing It photos on the site!
Essex Wildlife Trust – The EWT run 87 nature reserves, including Abberton Reservoir, one of my favourite bird-watching spots close to home
Swallow Birding – Fellow Essex birder Steve Grimwade’s company runs bird-watching trips and holidays
Lensmaster – I bought this gimbal for my 800mm lens and have been very pleased with it. The gimbals are hand-made in the UK and are significantly cheaper those offered by the big brands.
Pettlandssker Boat Trips – Hamish runs boat trips on an ex-RNLI lifeboat from South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands. The standard itinerary involves a trip out to the small uninhabited island of Muckle Skerrie, where you can disembark to see seals and puffin colonies up close. On our trip, we were lucky enough to have this plan interrupted by a pod of seven killer whales! See our Video page for more… With huge thanks to Hamish for a wonderful experience, and for keeping the boat out about an hour longer than planned!
