I have just sent my D810 off to Nikon for the service recall and am looking forward to putting the Easycover on it when it comes back. Also fitted a DIC condenser to the Zeiss Ultraphot microscope I bought a few weeks ago and my friend Mike is modifying the camera tube to be parfocal with the eyepieces as well as making an LED light source. It is time to search out the first flowering snowdrops!
This year will see new weekend and short-stay breaks based at Slate Mill Lodge which is only five minutes away from the departure point for Skomer Island. I am in the process of building two hides here, one for photographing kingfishers and the other for woodland birds. A barn owl nests close by and is being seen frequently hunting over the nearby reedbed. A day on Skomer can be combined with another day shooting landscapes or wildlife or a combination of both.
