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.

In the mist this morning, we decided to take our constitutional, around and over Shipley Hill. Leaving behind the grassy slopes round the southern side of the hill, we strolled through the trees and into the woodland.
Soon, we became aware of the fungi which are sprouting out of the rotting wood on the woodland floor.
Always a sure sign of autumn, fungi make an attractive - if a little strange - addition to the woodland landscape.
Adding a little more colour to the autumn scene, as we reached the remains of the old hall, the Yew trees provided a slash of bright red. Their berries almost glowing among the dark green foliage, they will provide a tasty meal for the local bird life.
