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.

Another very warm walk today, took us up and around Shipley Hill in the sunshine. The Daffodils are still looking very good around the woodland floor and they are now being accompanied by the first of this year's Bluebells.
Only a few of these little, blue jewels have opened their bell-shaped flowers so far, but with the promise of many thousand more to come.
The last few very warm days have brought out quite a few butterflies too. Malcolm spotted a Brimstone Butterfly flitting about in the hedge across the road from our house yesterday. The surrounding countryside is dotted with Peacock Butterflies too, as we found this morning. Our walk yesterday brought forth several others including this very obliging individual, sunning itself on the ground and only too happy to pose for a photograph.
