Water Lily at Steam Mills

It is the place where the anglers go, so does the ducks, gulls, dragonflies and plenty more things.

The Wild Boar at Taurus Crafts

It's real, honestly. Well, it looks like a Wild Boar, even if it is made out of pallets. I didn't get who sculpt it, maybe I ought to enquire.

6-Spot Burnet at Steam Mills

There were in a field or beyond, of these beautiful moths. Millions of them! They were eating or something, on these thistles.

Thistle seed at the Marshes

It wasn't a nice morning though it got much better in the afternoon. That was my weather report!

Four-spotted Chaser at Foxes Bridge Colliery

I was at the same place again, hoping to get some photos of the Deer, but I couldn't get any. Still, I got this one, although I spotted it about 5 days gone, but not as good this one.

Silver-washed Fritillary at Foxes Bridge Colliery (DEFUNCT)

I'm going there again, sooner than later. I filmed that butterfly and Fallow Deer. She came out of the woods and just looked at me. I will show you it someday.

Banded Demoiselle on the Cut, Lydney

In Lydney, there is piece of River Lyd called The Cut. I think that it was formed by a local paper merchant, who syphoned off the main river. It has so many wildlife, lets leave it alone!

Black-headed Gull at Lydney boating lake.

A lovely bird. I see so many at our lake. It's so beautiful throughout the year. In summer goes away to breed, but it comes back.

Migrant Hawker at Lydney boating pool.

I'm still waiting for the gate (kissing gate), one with a lock, to let me, and other disabled users in. The person who has the lovely job, has told me that it would come. The next job is to get them in the Forest of Dean.

Gatekeeper at The Marshes, Lydney

It turned out to be a glorious day, but a bit too windy. It's climate change, or so they say.

Monday 14 July 2008

Grey Heron

It is not a picture of the day, but I thought that you would like it. It has been a terrible day, hardly anything to photography.

Four-Spotted Chaser at Nagshead Nature Reserve

Not a good picture. It will do.
I met Lewis Thomson there, working for the RSPB. We had a good a bit chat. It is a nice thing to meet someone whose work is outstanding. I must remember to put his name on the links.
There it is, up in links.

Fox hole

I quite regularly see a Fox using this to get into another field. It is a beautiful thing to watch.

White-lipped Snail at Lydney

It's not the same as I already reported, it's a different colour. Either its a male or female, or is totally too young.

Wednesday 9 July 2008

Clouded Yellow butterfly.

It's been raining all day. I couldn't go out and enjoy myself, and for instance, no photograph either. So here is one from a few days ago.

Linnet at Naas Lane, Lydney

It is not very picturesque this photo, still, I will have to shoot another sooner or later.

Saturday 5 July 2008

Coot at Cannop Ponds

Another rainy day, I think it was something to do with the weather. Strong winds in summer, below the temperature and quite a rainfall. What shall we do?

Tracks in the Forest of Dean

What are the hoof prints? Is it a Leapord, Wild Boar, Deer or a Fox? Write to me and say what you think?

Roman Snail at Wild Lydney

We met up with the person, no names, from the Gloucestershire County Council today. My colleague, Dave from Gloucestershire LifeStyles, was there to help me. I speak awfully in those positions. Anyway, he said that he would try to sort this thing out with a new gate. We might get it in the close future. Let's wait for him?

Ringlet at Wild Lydney

I came to a new path being made at Harbour Road, Lydney. Really great, until I found that there was no room for disabled people. They are putting in three "kissing gates", but not the right ones. I'm waiting for them to come along and tell us what they are doing. The meeting is at 3.00pm Wednesday 2nd July at the Harbour Road, the old tip site. There is a tremendous amount of Nature, such as Bee Orchids, Lapwings, Dragonflies, Butterflies, the odd foxes and many more. The land is owned by Network Rail, and Lydney Town Council and Gloucestershire County Council who are helping with it.
