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.

It wasn't just the Coots which were actively preening and primping themselves around Straw's Bridge yesterday. The Canada Geese too were having a bit of a wash and brush up.
Having sorted out their plumage, they were naturally, keen to show themselves off to anyone who was interested. Strutting along the water's edge, they made quite a handsome sight.
Some were looking on in admiration (or was it envy?) at the Mute Swans as they glided by looking even more 'salon-fresh'.
The Blackthorn bushes around the lake were also looking rather fine in the sunshine, particularly when viewed against the clear, blue sky.
