Over the coming weeks, I will be featuring some of Stuart Hutchings' photographic work. His interest in photography and wildlife will be known to many but maybe not known, was his wide interest in every type of camera available at the time. Medium format, plate cameras, field cameras, digital cameras and SLR's were all held in the armoury. Stuart sadly passed away nearly five years ago. Some of his work has never been published and with Cait's kind permission, some stunning images of his are proudly shown here.
The first image is an Upland Sandpiper which was found on the Lizard Downs, Cornwall in October 1982. It was the first record since 1968 and the fifth record for Cornwall. Stuart photographed this bird with a Nikon F2 SLR film camera.
