Today is the Autumn Equinox, where the duration of the day and night are of equal length all over the world.

The season of autumn for me is arguably one of the finest times of year to enjoy and view wildlife with this amazing mosaic of colour as the backdrop.

Its a time where the trees and ground are laden with fruits, berries and nuts forming a rich bouty of food, one that all animal’s take advantage of before the onset of Winter.

Two of my favourite species at this time of year are Short-eared Owls, that come down from the uplands to feed at sea level during our Autumn and Winter months.

Mountain Hares change colour at this time of year to pure white to avoid predators and blend in with their snow capped landscapes. It really is a fantastic time of year in so many ways.

It’s also a wonderful time of year to see Red Squirrels and one such place is on the North West coastal region of the UK where they are still doing well.

Short-eared Owls are beautiful and it’s a great time to see these owls now.

Unplanned, unscripted in its truest form, watching wildlife is priceless and capturing those briefest of moments with your camera allows you to relive that experience long after you’ve left.

I run a number of one day workshops and one to ones where you can see and photograph a lot of the British wildlife. They offer a wonderful wild experience whether you want to learn more about your own wildlife photography or just be guided for that day.
