So another year comes to an end!
I've had a great year when it comes to nature, seeing some birds for the first ever time after a lifetime of no luck! Birds such as Whinchat, Turtle Dove, Hawfinch and a Tawny Owl in the daytime.
  Other firsts included Black Winged Stilt, Woodchat Shrike and Grey Phalarope.
Photography wise, I got pictures of many other great birds, and photographed about 150 species in all, the vast majority in my home County of Somerset and a handful in neighbouring Devon and Dorset.
 Other special moments this year included watching a Stoat running across ice at RSPB Greylake hunting Snipe, seeing a Snow Bunting up close at WWT Steart Marshes, photographing a beautiful Merlin as it flew past me at the same reserve and photographing 3 other Owls, Barn Owl at RSPB Ham Wall, Short Eared Owl at Uphill and Little Owls near Lympsham.
  
Thank you for taking a look at my blog over the last year, and I hope you continue to enjoy it in 2018!
Happy New Year everyone!

So here, in no particular order, are my favourite 100 photo's from 2017! :)
