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.

Leaden skies once again accompanied our walk this morning. Despite it being a degree or two milder, the increased breeze made it feel as cold as ever as we walked to Osborne's Pond.
Most of the over-wintering wildfowl seem to have moved on, leaving the lake to the more familiar Mallards, Coots and Mute Swans. A small flock of Canada Geese were busy grazing on the adjoining field leaving the water unusually quiet.
Returning from the lakeside view, we walked along the road back toward Shipley lake. You always get a good perspective view along the road, especially when the trees are bare - except for the ivy climbing up the trunks.
