Pink and Grey
I love to take photos that look otherworldly, but are absolutely true to life – no camera jiggery pokey!
The last photos from Slimbridge for a while (until we go again!) I did take over 300 so I’ve been quite restrained really!
Noticed these swans the other day and had to pop them on.
A beautiful Scottish Winters day – from a few years ago.
These photos really should come with sound – imagine, the first sunny morning for weeks, the birds were in full song!
Warning – this post shows photos of extremely cute lambs!
The first Ladybird of the year – out and about a little early (we’ve frost forecast for this coming week)
and a sparkling brook = sunshine for the first time in weeks! maybe the mud will dry up…..please.
… an enormous golden glitter ball – only £5 from the scrap store.
Anyone for a disco?
Flamingos braving the cold at Slimbridge!
We couldn’t resist a winter visit and weren’t disappointed. I love to see the Swans and Geese flying, landing and taking off -always at the point when I had my camera switched off, of course. I had to make do with the fairly sedentary flamingos.
There’s always a book in the visitors centre for people to write down the birds they’ve spotted – we were slightly dubious about the owl spotted in the car park and resisted the temptation to put down the very rare Pigwidgeon seen nesting on top of the toilet block!
See the summer visit here, and here .
