Keith Scovell's Wild Life

Postby kscovell » Thu Jan 01, 2015 9:41 pm

Hi my name is Keith Scovell and I love being outside watching and photographing wildlife. I started out as a birdwatcher but all life fascinates me so I am never bored. I have a passion for shorebirds and seabirds, but I also need a regular cetacean fix! Have a look at my latest blog post which looks back on my highlights for 2014 at http://keithscovell.blogspot.co.uk Follow me on Twitter @keithscovell3

Hi Keith,

Happy New Year!

Thanks for posting on our Forum and sharing your great pictures.

I visited Northumberland hoping to see white beaked dolphins but unfortunately the trip was cancelled due to bad weather. Glad you still managed to see minke whales and Atlantic white-sided dolphins!

Looking forward to reading more blog posts from you.

Thanks for joining the project! We know you a little bit already from that alternative universe that is Twitter ;-)

I like it that you are happy posting about woodies as well as gorgeous garganeys and black-necked grebes...

Speaking of which, are the garganeys likely to breed at Burton Marsh? I haven't visited the reserve in its latest incarnation - must go next time I visit the folks in Cheshire.

Hi Ben

Glad you are enjoying the posts. And yes I enjoy watching and photographing all wildlife; I have just moved house and now have both House Sparrows and Starlings in my new garden, both were completely absent at my last house :)

Garganey turn up at Burton Mere most Springs but I don't know if they have bred successfully in recent years. My best Garganey photos have been taken at Cley in Norfolk.

Kind regards

Keith

Hi Jo

Glad you like my blog. As you can see I am a bit of a cetacean fanatic!

I will definitely be returning to Northumberland this year for another attempt to see the White-beaked Dolphins. My first attempt to see them was in Dorset a few years ago and that trip was also cancelled due to bad weather! A trip to see the seabirds on the Farne Islands is also high on my list of things to do this year, I haven't been for a couple of years and there is no place quite like it :)

Kind regards

Keith

Great to read your blogs Keith. You have certainly seen some amazing wildlife recently! I am yet to see otters in the wild but it's on my wish list for this year :)
