Went for a lovely wander today at a place called Barford Wood and Meadows, which is a small-ish nature reserve managed by the Wildlife Trust in Northamptonshire. It is made up of meadows and a portion of woodland, and it used to form part of the local Rockingham forest. It was quite difficult to find, … Continue reading a Red Kite for your Sunday
It’s been a while since I last posted! I took a bit of a break as I had a lot going on and didn’t want to force myself to post for no reason.

Hello hello. It has been a pretty cold and miserable January so far in my part of England but there have been occasional sunny and mild days, and I’m glad to say that B and I have been able to get out for some walks in our local area. We are attempting to spot some … Continue reading January birds

It’s the first time I’ve been able to capture a decent image of a kingfisher so I was very excited and pleased that it hung around for a while, apparently not bothered by my presence. After a … Continue reading hello little kingfisher
B was very lucky recently to win a 2 night stay in a castle through his work, so after careful deliberation on my part (he wasn’t fussy where we went) I chose Peckforton Castle in Cheshire for our little break! It was definitely the right choice. Peckforton castle is apparently a Victorian country house which … Continue reading sleeping in a castle!
How has it been almost a month already since I last posted? I’ve not had a lot going on this month I suppose. Work is taking up a lot of my mental and physical energy right now. Anyway, here are a few pics from the last month that I’ve saved.
