However, I am delighted to announce that this image of a Kestrel was Highly Commended at this years British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) in the Animal Portraits section.
The awards ceremony for the BWPA was hosted by Chris Packham on 3rd September 2014 in London. Given that I was photographing in Kenya that week I was unable to attend the awards ceremony. It was a shame that I was unable to visit in person so I will take this opportunity to congratulate all of the winners and all those who had work commended and thank the organisers for their effort and time to organise these annual awards.

Earlier in the year I had decided not to enter any of the major photographic competitions. That decision was partly due to work commitments at the time and partly to take a step away from the competitive edge of photography and concentrate on what I enjoy doing most, namely taking photographs. Well, all of that changed when a certain friend and inspirational photographer Richard Peters visited for the weekend and “put some pressure” on me to enter. The deadline for the BWPA entry coincided with Richards visit, so to keep my guest happy, I duly entered…


Thanks therefore go to www.richardpeters.co.uk for the nudge. Cheers buddy…
