Off tiger spotting in India; have a great summer

Have a great summer folks and stay wild for us. We're off tiger shooting in India (with cameras you understand) Have absolutely no belief we will see any Tigs but hopefully we'll return with a few pictures of beautiful birds and butterflies at least.

If you want to follow our 6 week trip around Kerala then please scooch across to:

Videos of a Marsh Harrier hunting at Leighton Moss Nature Reserve

Here are a couple of videos taken of a Marsh Harrier hunting at Leighton Moss. It was on full zoom, so excuse the shaky camerawork! By the way, the noise is from nearby black-headed gulls rather than the marsh harrier itself.

Connection with the pros

Yes Wild with Pants may be a very amateur enterprise BUT we do have connections with the professionals of wildlife conservation, ecology and science you know.

Big shout out to my littlest sister Jess Walkup to say congrats on a great moment on BBC Scotland "Good Morning Scotland" Her bit starts at about 2.20into the show!

Picture Jess and Pants!

Marsh Harrier Heaven

The very last trip to Leighton Moss before we head off for summer to the Indian SW Monsoon and Kerala wildwife.

Great views of the Marsh Harriers again. Also some comical red shanks all spooked by the black headed gulls.

Summer means wasps

This wasp nest was found at the edge of a pine forest on Longridge Fell. As ever, click on the photo to get a much better view than the one displayed.
