Visited the British Open again this year, really lucky with the weather on the Saturday. It was a good competition started off with the Irish teams trials. With competitors from all around Europe including some of the stars from the World Championships from the weekend before.
Just got back from a trip up to Alan McFadyen's hides near Kirkcudbright. Great set up, Alan was really helpful, managed to see a wonderful array of birds and wildlife. I managed some nice shots of the cuckoo, the infamous sparrowhawk and the lovely red squirrels feeding in the bluebells.
Just returned from the GB selection event at Lee Valley over the Easter weekend. Lots of great racing and great weather. Too good, with the bright sunshine making the images more challenging to get. Starting to load up the images from the weekend.
I went to the British open yesterday, wonderful weather and a great competition. I'm starting to publish on the website images from the event. Still sad that the C2 competition has been downgraded and we only had one C2 entrant yesterday, a long way from winning gold in 2012!
I went up to Wyboston at the beginning of May to go see the jet ski racing. My first time at a jet ski race and thanks to the help of the marshals I managed to work out what was going on. Really enjoyed it will have to go back again.
Went along to the Easter GB slalom selection event, great paddling even the weather couldn't spoil it.
Went to the Champion of Champion 2017 grasstrack racing at Swingfield a couple of weeks ago, racing great and the weather good too. Unfortunately the ground was a little dry and the the racing threw up too much dust for the racing to finish safely, so it was called off part way through the afternoon.
Went up to the Cairngorms this February to try and see some of the wonderful wildlife in it's winter plumage. I was lucky, manage to see everything I wanted and the weather wasn't too bad and there was even some snow left up on the mountains. Thanks to Neil for showing me around.
In the summer we spent a great 10 days in Italy, travelling by overnight train from England, great way to travel, lovely country to visit
