The grey winter days are not good for photography, so I am using this opportunity to continue updating the image galleries into the new improved Porta gallery format. You will notice lots of new images if you search through.

Due to having such a wonderful time photographing grey seals at Donna Nook in Lincolnshire this year, I have added a new hints and tips page which covers getting there, and how to get some great pictures of these fantastic animals
