Hello, My name is Matthew Barfield, I’m a precision engineer and spend a lot of my spare time out with my camera.
Most of my photographs are of birds taken here in the New Forest. One of my favourite places to walk is Lymington and Keyhaven marshes because its huge variety of birds.
My photographs have been printed in the local newspaper and in the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust Winter 2017 magazine.
