Welcome!
This website contains a collection of my own photographs taken of birds seen in Ireland along with images from overseas birding trips. Common, scarce and rare birds seen in Ireland can be found under the heading Irish Birding. Photographs taken outside of Ireland can be found in the Trips section (with The Gambia, Majorca, Antarctica, Namibia, Panama and Bulgaria there so far and Ecuador and The Galapagos to follow later this year).

Finally, I have placed what I consider to be my best shots in the Favourites section. My selection here is based on the composition of the shot and the sharpness of the image or perhaps the bird is noteworthy in an Irish context or just happened to be doing something interesting at the time I took the shot.
