Peter Moore Wildlife Photography
Pete is now based in Wareham, Dorset, but when we were both living in Kent he was my best birding mate.  Lots of avian adventures were shared, travelling through the night to see and find new, rare birds for us, as well as the local Kent hotspots.  Pete's website has a huge selection of British birds, moths and butterflies as well as fantastic landscapes and overseas trips.  Take a peek, you won't be disappointed.  Read Pete's witticisms and observations on his highly addictive blog!
