A traditional mid-winter pursuit today: find some Sanderlings on Studland Beach, kneel down on the beach 30-40 yards ahead of them waiting for them to come past for some photos, let the auto-focus lock-on and...watch them fly off over the waves when flushed by a dog; then find some Sanderlings, kneel down on the beach 30-40 yards ahead of them...you get the idea. Eventually hungry birds coincided with a dog-free stretch of beach, and me, and we were all able to do what we came for in peace for a few minutes.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
