Chris Knights Wildlife Photography

The Norfolk Plover

Chris Knights is a Norfolk man and anyone who is remotely acquainted will know of his love for the Stone-curlew, known locally as the Norfolk Plover.  Over 60 years ago he took his first photograph of this bird that has become one of his favourite subjects in the bird world. While farming he educated his workforce to look out for nests to mark, so that they were protected and could raise their young successfully. The book has many photographs that he has enjoyed taking over the years, giving him much pleasure and continuing to do so. This beautiful book will delight all of those with a love for the countryside, farming or wildlife.

About Chris Knights

Chris has lived in Norfolk all his life and been keen on birds and natural history subjects for the greater part of it. He first became interested in photography in the late 1950’s which has played an ever-increasing part in his life, many of his pictures have been taken on his own farm in Norfolk and on his travels to various parts of the world including Spain, Poland, Canada, Japan and New Zealand.  Over a 25-year period he made wildlife films for television.

Over the years he has seen a change in photography moving on from film to digital which has created exciting opportunities using the light, especially early mornings and late evenings.
