    All of the above pics are of wild subjects too particularly proud of the Pine Marten and crested tit pics along with the Barn and Short Eared Owls

    I saw your Wildlife stuff on another site, i was blown away by the quality. Im not particularly geared up for Wildlife although Im about to take the plunge and get some more gear. Do you mind if I ask what set up you have Andy please. ?

    Them Owls are Gorgeous shots. Ive become obsessed with the owls this winter. Im realising though that I need to splash the cash if if going to capture anything like these images. Im wondering If I might have accidentally bumped into you one day Andy. I know you mentioned The Scaling Area on Facebook, and when Ive been in that area myself Ive seen someone in a hide.

    Cheers Andy. im currently looking at a Canon 7d and the sigma 100 600 sport.

    @harrythecod is also doing some nice wildlife stuff. You must be very pleased with your pictures they really are excellent.

    Ive got to laugh you know. i was out near Lealholm the other night and I got all excited thinking i was photographing a red kite. I later realised it was more like a heron. Eysight aint what it used to be.

    No I don't use a hide yet but do photograph that same area over winter for the short eared owls funny about the kite I spent some time in the dawn light getting close to a fine fox in a stubble field once the sun came up a bit it turned out to be a traffic cone !!!

    OMG no hide ?? You must really know your wildlife. I love all the photographs but perhaps the owl ones are my favourite. Ive spent a good 4 months now wathcing them on the moors and Im amazed by them and actually by their numbers. Seems the moors are covered in them.

    Ive been speaking to Mike today and he tells me hes found yet another local Peregrine Falcon. I now know of 3 within a short distance from home.

    I love them all, it would be difficult to pick a favourite, but my love of Owls would probably take me to the one just about to touch down on its prey.
