British Bird Photographs




Hello and thanks for visiting my website. My name is Ian Rose and I live in West Essex, UK and I am using this site to display some of my bird photographs. There are quite a lot of them now and more are being added regularly - some are purely "record shots" which I hope to replace with better images in time.

A lot of the pictures are taken at Amwell Nature Reserve in East Herts, my "local patch" but I also make regular visits to Rye Meads RSPB Reserve and Epping Forest. Further away from home, we visit friends in Powys, Wales and some of the photos are taken there, also visits to various parts of the UK have resulted in a few photos.

There are also a few photographs of birds from Tenerife, Sri Lanka, St Lucia, Greece, Mexico, USA and Canada taken whilst on holiday.
