Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Looking out of the window yesterday, I was delighted to see a young Blue Tit hopping around in the Hawthorn. With lots of wing fluttering and cheeping and an almost constantly open beak, it was being fed by its parent and looked gorgeous.
Sadly, it was dull at the time and so the pictures are not the best, but even in the half light of a Hawthorn in full bloom, this little sweetheart was adorable. Still demanding food from it's overworked parent, it proceeded to hop onto the fat balls and help itself. The poor parent bird looked a little ticked off at this as if it suddenly realised it was being 'taken for a ride' and it might be time for the kid to leave home...!
