The Alderney Wildlife Trust contracted this year with local professional photographer Chris Bale to produce photographs for some of its wide and ever-growing range of promotional and educational material. Chris has endless patience to hide away immobile in full camouflage gear for hours on end to try to obtain shots of birds behaving naturally. His results speak for themselves! Below are a few of his photos of Lesser Black-backed Gulls – some of the best I’ve ever seen anywhere. You can enjoy some more of Chris’ work on his web http://www.guernseybirdnerd.com
Alternatively if you live in Guernsey you can visit his exhibition at the Guernsey Picture Framers & Art Gallery at the Vale Church Junction. The exhibition opens on 31 July 2013.
