Photo by @jimrichardsonng Boreray is on the wildest edge of wild Scotland, forty miles further out in the Atlantic from the Outer Hebrides. Beloved by nesting gannets who soared out to inspect us as our boat approached that evening. It’s part of St. Kilda and kind of tough to get to, but a greatly rewarding place if you can. We’re preparing a story on Scotland and it’s best places.

Who doesn't love a good bird! 🐦🕊️ FUN FACT about blue tits: Males sing and provide food for the female as a part of courtship. Cute right!? ♥️😂 . . . . #braggydraws #britishbirds #british #birds #bluetit #greattit #chaffinch #goldfinch #robin #watercolour #painting #gardenbirds #sketching #ink #drawing #davidattenborough #nature #love #animals #funfacts

The camping gear, stand display, pots, jewellery, finds and numerous seedheads are finally packed, ready to set off down to Art in Clay at Hatfield House tomorrow . I’ve wanted to visit Art in Clay for a few years, although I didn’t imagine that the first time I did so, I would be exhibiting! As well as being an opportunity to see and buy the work of potters and ceramic artists from all over the UK and Europe, there will also a full programme of talks and demonstrations too (several of which I’d like to go to if I wasn’t going to be behind my stand all the time). The show is will be open from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th. Come and say hello if you’re going 🕊 . @art_inclay #ceramics #pottery #clay #wheelthrown #handbuilt #handpainted #stoneware #glaze #collection #cremerging #rocks #pebbles #feathers #birdegg #eggshell #oology #britishbirds #birdsofinstagram #ornithology #seedheads #foraging #walking #nature #naturalhistory #summer #artinclay #hatfieldhouse #hertfordshire
We were very lucky to spot this beautiful creature as we sat in the car on the moors in the Peak District when it landed on a post right next to where we were parked! 🦉 #littleowl #owl #owlsofinstagram #beauty #windswept #windsweptowl #peakdistrict #feathers #sundayafternoon #embracenature #wildlife #britishwildlife #britishbirds #britishowls #mermaidpool #winkingman #privileged #raresighting #talons #eyes #greatbritain #england #nature
Always happy when you catch sight or sound of one of these ☺️
Not the best shot ever, but this was the first time I’ve recognised the sound of a treecreeper, so I was chuffed to bits to see I was right!
Jackdaw. Gathering his thoughts in a moment of quiet. It won’t last. #jackdaw #britishbirds #noisy #charcoalpencil #drawing #artistsofinstagram
Present from an old student of mine whom I miss dearly! A very well chosen gift it was, too 😍 #wildlifephotography #kingfisher #britishbirds #twobirds #ginge #selfie #happy #favourite
One of the three resident Cayuga ducks on Whiteknights lake, unlike in mallards, female Cayugas also have brightly coloured feathers so whether they are male or female is less immediately obvious. This duck can be distinguished as a male (also known as a drake) due to its curled tail feathers which can be used to identify the sex of ducks over 7 months old.

Little Tern. A lovely little bird. I’m drawing from photos on Wikipedia now. @derwentpencils Procolour in a @calepino notebook #britishbirds #pppbirds #drawing #sketching

A few feathers missing, but this one was still ruling the sky! Taken up at Kithurst Hill, South Downs Way. 📷 #wildlifephotography #birdsinflight #raptor #britishbirds #predator #sussexphotographer #southdowns #olympusuk #getolympus #lightroom #theskyisthelimit
I think I’ve been neglecting birds for a while, so here’s a Sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) at first sunlight hit its favourite perch. I’m almost guaranteed to see this one in the same bush. #warbler #bird #birds #britishbirds #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #birdphotography #birdlovers #birdwatching #kings_birds #naturyst #feather_perfection #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #natureshots #animals #photography #rspb #rspb_love_nature #gu_like_capture #animals_illife
Lesser Whitethroat. A bird that will shortly find it's way via Israel to NE and Central Africa. Amazing to see this one and not a bird I've knowingly seen for over a decade. #birdringing #citizenscience #birdbanding #migrant #migration #flyway #ukwildlife #britishbirds #BTO
Yesterday was tough; read a poem at a funeral and I struggled to get to the end, but just managed it. These photos are a nice memory of last week's holiday. Near the burial stones at St David's Head, eating our sandwiches in the company of a fledgling. I don't know what it is, maybe a kite. It was looking out to sea. We didn't stay too close as it's parent was circling not far away. #britishbirds #stdavidshead #naturelovers

The garden seems a good place to learn how to use a new camera. 🐦 #robin #gardenbirds #britishbirds #garden #fujixt2 #photography #gardenphotography
Common Buzzard - Buteo buteo One of the new birds that I'm really looking forward to working with, Chester the Common Buzzard. These guys are native to the U.K & quite common, hence the name! To see them in the wild & then to work with him is gonna be pretty cool😊! #commonbuzzard #buzzard #buteobuteo #broadwing #birdofprey #raptor #bird #birdsofinstagram #animals #animalsofinstagram #native #britishbirds #brown #feathers #newbird #perch #chester #manning #parentreared #falconry #leedscastle #leedscastlefalconry
