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.

Some general and quite beautiful views from around the area today, starting with a few from this morning's walk around Shipley Hill.
Among the Ash, Chestnut, Beech, Horse Chestnut and Holly trees which adorn the top of the hill, a small stand of Pines tower above many of their companions.
In the bright sunshine of this morning, the trees were looking wonderfully bright too.
Where the Wildlife Trust have created more footpaths around Shipley Lake, you are able to get some views which have hitherto been hidden to us.
The Meadows of Pewit Carr are also looking green and pleasant at the moment. The wild flowers - which I might have mentioned lately - are filling the meadow to head height, making finding a path through them, a little more tricky than before.
