Paxton Pits Nature Reserve

I took a trip to Paxton Pits Nature Reserve today with Phil Miles, he was introducing me to bird photography. The day was just perfect a bright start to the morning with light cumulus cover, the afternoon was slightly more cloudy but still very good for photography.

East Anglian air ambulance

Today the East Anglian air ambulance had to land on the Northolt Av Play area, Bishop’s Stortford to bring medical assistance to one of the local residents. I saw the helicopter coming in to land so I went to the park soon after it had landed and took these shots.
