Tony McLean's East Yorkshire Wildlife Diary

Wildlife photography in East Yorkshire

Triton Gallery, Sledmere Sunday 19 June – Saturday 25 June

I am taking part in a joint exhibition with several members from Driffield Photographic society in a few weeks time. I shall be displaying ten of my best wildlife images taken at Tophill Low during the past couple of years. (Actually, there is a photograph of a Bittern that was taken at Potteric Carr—but I won’t tell anyone if you don’t!). The Triton Gallery is opposite Sledmere House and has the same opening times – please note that both the gallery and the house are closed on Mondays. Why not come along and have a peek. Any feedback would be useful and best of all… admission is free. That is unless you purchase a print!

Fox Cub watching

It’s been a week of Grey Herons. Pity its purple cousin wasn’t around too. Now, that would have been something very special. A family of foxes have provided a few minutes of excitement most days. However, the cubs are maturing fast and will be on their own merry way very soon. Never mind! Anyway, several Herons have been active on the reserve and I always delight in their behaviour and prehistoric guise. Always fun to photograph and easy too. It’s not too difficult to obtain a good focus lock on such a large bird.

Heron Landing

Grey Heron flight

I’m returning to Hortobagy in Hungary for a week this Friday so this will be the last post for a week or so. I’m looking forward to my trip and hope to return with some good images of some of the local birds…especially a Red Legged Falcon and a perhaps a colourful Roller or two. 😉

Meanwhile, I’ll leave you all with a picture of a red fox taken last week…
