Photo index 

 

search for photographs in each section

 

By clicking on the Heading at the top of each section or quarter, a link will be activated to take you to the top of that page or sub-section. The list of pictures then shows the actual order in which they first appear in that section. There may well be more than one picture of the same species but only the first is noted in each part. The scientific name is followed by an English name. Where applicable, the proper name has a capital letter, eg Blue tit; while a grouping, eg hoverflies, will have a lower case to start the word.

This index covers all wildlife and botanical pictures on the site. The occurrence of each species is recorded in each section by the order in which it occurs, rather than alphabetically. In the page headed ‘Hymenoptera’ and its sub-sections, single species are shown as examples of each genus, where available, rather than attempting to cram in the many held on file.
