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.

Only one subject for today's blog entry and one which Malcolm suggested as we walked through Mapperley village this morning. The field of cattle and especially the calves which were resting in the sunshine.
This mixed herd of cattle, both adults and several youngsters, were being rather vocal as we passed, eagre as they were, to be in contact with another herd some distance away which was mooing back at them with some gusto.
These little calves however, were taking it all in their stride and making the most of what little sunshine was on offer, following the dismal weather we've had lately.
With their large eyes, long lashes and pink, wet noses, they looked extremely photogenic laying in their field. This pair seemed to be inseparable...
All tagged with their bright yellow 'ear-rings', they made a handsome sight this morning.
