Snow Birds

Nicknamed ‘Beast from the East’ a good deal of snow struck Britain last week. I thought the snow would give a great natural backdrop to some bird photos and spent a while with my camera pointing out into the back garden to see what birds I could take photos of. The first three photos featuring some robins, a blackbird and a chaffinch.



Three photos of a fieldfare what I can’t recall ever seeing in the garden before.

Water Webs

Water droplets glowing from the morning sunlight layered the spider webs on the water pump.





Skye at 8

I have a some photos of Skye out in our garden in a post from over 3 years ago just before she turned 5 years old. Now 8 and sporting a few additional greys I got her out for another little session in front of the camera.







Marlee

This is Marlee, a friends gorgeous 4 month old Vizsla cross Labrador puppy. She came to visit and have some interaction with our two Black Labs on the weekend, firstly joining is for a walk down the lane before having a run about in the garden where I took some photos of her.

Barrington Court Gardens

I went to Barrington Court a little while ago now with a friend, I’ve been pretty busy¬†since with work and this has been my¬†first good day to take a look at my photos in Lightroom. We had a good two or three hours walking about the grounds and house there with a lot to see. Would definitely recommend a visit to Barrington Court to anyone who enjoys National Trust buildings.

Speckledy

We’ve added three new chickens to our free ranged flock recently, all Speckledys. One of them with the whitest neck wouldn’t let me get in line of sight with her for a photo. The other two were a little easier to get a few snaps off.
