Back in March 2013, I was lucky enough to hear about a 'rogue' male Capercaillie. I have strong memories from my childhood of watch David Attenborough being attack by one on telly and always wanted to experience this. Nothing can prepare you for the primordial heart pounding feeling you get when faced with a 'proper' male Caper. Fantastic to photograph and to experience.
In early June 2012 I visited Varanger and Lapland and we found six broods of Hawk Owls. Often incredibly confiding and very vocal, these were great subjects and highly addictive to photograph.
Otters have been a favourite subject all year and this family in Thetford town centre was the start of if it all in 2013. Can't wait for more in the next decade!
