As most readers
of this website will know, I'm a very keen wildlife photographer: my photographs
have appeared widely in print
and other media. You can see some of them here:
BIRDS OF THE HEATH
At the various talks I give and conferences I attend,
I'm often asked whether I've managed to combine the two interests
and photograph a UFO. The answer depends on your personal definition:
certainly I've captured images of a number of
aerial phenomena, not all of which have appeared in these pages. I've
decided to post a few of the most interesting below...
images above were taken through my 5" astronomical refractor: I was
trying to capture the 'Old Moon in the

This strange ring-like phenomenon appeared above an event we attended
in South Norfolk. The left hand image is unretouched,
the others are enhanced using edge detection and colour enhancement software.
Other similar images (and a few simulations) can be found throughout the
website. Now bearing in mind I spend a good part of
each week walking the country lanes and marshes with a camera, it's perhaps
surprising how few photos I've managed to
take: I see more than I grab an image of!
