Black Redstart (Tutshill - Forest of Dean)

Today, I produced a Black Redstart - my first. It was a bad photographing day, but I had to do it.



It must have been a motor with an enormous engine, ooh, one that runs on diesel, and it doesn't last long since it was last filled it up. Well, it's worth it, pouring diesel fumes all over the place.......

Brambling (Forest of Dean)

It was a nice sort of day. Lots of sun, a bit on the windy side, hey, I was very happy. Here is my shot of today, the Brambling.

Pied Wagtails, Tutshill Estate, FOD.

Well, guess what.....................it didn't rain, but, it might have been. So, I went in touch of the Black Redstart at Tutshill, right in the middle of of the estate. I've been there plenty of times, but I can't get to see the Black Redstart. If anyone can tell me where it is, I'd be very very grateful. Anyway, I tucked myself in to the Pied Wagtail. That sounds bad, oh well.......

The belated Waxwings.

This is a little bit out of time, although there are plenty in England, and I think elsewhere. These I had to doctor them, well four of them.

 And the next four are doctored up.

Coot (The boating lake, Lydney)

I sat down and spent about half an hour filming this one, in that time, he didn't want to get up, which I was lucky.

Reed Bunting (2nd Lake, Harbour Road, Lydney) Part II

This is some from yesterdays, in fact, I took 750 snaps in Harbour Road. What I like the most is the reeds, old and fragile.

Reed Bunting (2nd Lake on Harbour Road, Lydney)

I had a glimpse at the reeds, and there it was, the Reed Buntings. There were three of them, all males. The funniest of the Reed Bunting is, it was the first time I had seen them clambering about in the reeds. Funny, ha ha!




I have stopped the "Save OUR Forests" for now, should anything triggered by the government, I will start up the petition, I hope that nothing will happen.

We are the WINNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A message from 38 degrees

Dear Bob,

WE'VE WON! The government has just confirmed they're totally scrapping the forest sell-off. The phoney consultation has been cancelled. The sinister legal changes to pave the way for privatisation have been dropped.

We did this together. Next time someone tries to tell any of us that signing petitions or emailing our MPs doesn’t work, we’ll know exactly what to say: “People power does work. Just look at the Save Our Forests campaign”.

Over half a million of us can feel very proud of what we've achieved together today.

Chaffinch (Forest of Dean - HOOF)

The government has come out with this statement, that we should take down our SAVE OUR FORESTS from the trees and places, why. In my opinion, now is the beginning of our fight, so put up more.

Long-tailed Tits (Forest of Dean - HOOF)

I love the L-T Tits, they had found where someone had just a place to feed them, and they were very hungry.
