Hi

I'm Robin Gossage and knocking on 18 3/4yrs (and a bit more)!

Since the advent of digital I've tried to photograph wildlife.
Both my wife Wendy and I have been good friends with Eleanor and Neil for more years than I can remember, and we have been fortunate to have traveled with them to many wildlife destinations.
I would like to thank them for allowing me a 'spot on their blog' (although I thought the charge was rather extortionate!).
Thank You!

Also I would like to thank Wendy for being so patient and finding lots of stuff for me to photograph.
Anyways up here are some pictures that may appeal and be interesting I hope.
Lastly thanks to the usual crowd of lads.  They know who they are!

Cheers Robin.
