    New member from the UK

    Just making myself known to you all.
    I live in the UK and love travel, having visited Europe, Africa, Asia & South America
    I am now retired and am enjoying every minute of it as it gives me time for the important things, including my wildlife photography.
    I am regularly to be found photographing birds but I love every sort of wildlife so whatever comes along will get me tracking. I have always had Nikon for my digital photography and currently use a D700 and a D500 with a number of lenses including a Nikon 500 f4 VR and Nikon 300 f4 VR PF.
    Entirely an amateur, photography is for me a means of relaxing and getting some additional fresh air and exercise.
    I look forward to learning and sharing.

    Welcome to the forums Roger,

    Looks like we're in for a treat - judging by the first image I saw just now.

    Cheers, Dave

    Welcome Roger. I am not always here but I tried to be and participate every now and then. I am also an amateur but from what I had seen so far of your uploads they are pretty good. Enjoy your stay.

    Welcome to CiC, Roger. Looks like we shoot much the same kit aside from the 700. Looking forward to seeing you putting it to good use.

    Thanks Dan, the D700 was 'scratching an itch' but now I have it I do like it. My D500 is with Nikon Service ATM as it has very high battery drain but it's been sitting on their shelf waiting for someone to look at it for 2 weeks
