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.

A quick walk around Straw's Bridge again today to 'check on' the ducklings. All ten are still there with both parents still keeping an eye on them.
By another of the lakes, a Moorhen was strutting about in the grass looking a little uneasy, when the cause of her anxiety came running from the undergrowth. A well-grown youngster, looking like a miniature emu, was running about like a dervish squeaking constantly.
By 'Swan Lake' the usual gaggle of Canada Geese was busy demanding bread from all and sundry...
... and among them was a Greylag Goose which seemed to be trying to blend in with it's Canadian cousins.
