This section includes a number of random articles about some of the species that I've seen and photographed over the years that took my interest enough to write a bit about them. In most, but not necessarily all cases, they're about an animal or bird that I've spent a bit of time with. Some articles relate to a specific subject, whilst others, such as African Hornbills for example, look at a group of related species. There's no favouritism, and there's no particular order, apart from separating the feathered variety from those with fur or scales.
Although I fully intend to add new content to this page from time to time, a number of these write-ups are taken, or have been adapted from, information that was on my original website, either in the form of photo set introductions or accompanying comments. Sadly, those photo sets no longer exist, so rather than lose the associated information I've used some of it here.
Each of the following sets of articles starts with a 'data file', which is a convenient place for recording useful associated information such as classification and general taxonomy details, and access to my personal lists.
The traffic light colour-coded dots are : 'green' for completed articles, 'amber' for an article that's either being put together or, in the case of the 'data files', being regularly updated, and 'red' for any intended new articles.
