A white autumn at Foxes Bridge

It was cold this morning, -1.7 degrees centigrade, brrrrrrrrrrrrr. But it didn't stay that way, at about 10.45am, it all went overcast and murky. To tell you, I was cold and pleased to be going back home.

Tree Creeper at Moseley Green

Occasionally you have this thing that you don't want, its the taking good photographs, well, it seems like its turned on me, for the last 10 days. This is a Tree Creeper, yes, it is. I found it on a track leading down to the Rising Sun, a pub. No I couldn't drink that wondrous stuff BEER. I was driving a car......................

Marsh Tit at Cannop Ponds

Another Marsh Tit at the feeding spot. It's good for those birds, and the people who go there just watch them and those that are going to feed them.

Mistle Thrush at Foxes Bridge colliery

It is here, not that it has disappeared, only hiding in amongst behind leaves. The "storm cock", (another name for them), can be heard in December calling for it's mate, and will lay their eggs in February and ready about March.

Ruddy Darter at the Marshes, Lydney

It's a nice change, better the weather. We have had the Ruddy Darter before, but with November coming along, it was very close to it's finale.

Flamingo at Slimbridge WWT

It was a lousy day, high winds and rain. I spent my day up in Cirencester with my mum & dad. They are vegetarians, like me, who tend to make good food. And, I had some apples which were lovely. I took away a lot, and I didn't even pay for them, whoopsee. Maybe I'll get it to them somehow. It is time to show you a Slimbridge Flamingo.

Sparrowhawk seen in my garden

This Sparrowhawk was hiding, not very well I think. I took this shot from behind the double glazing, a real asset to the climate change, but it makes poor one for trying to photography.

Midge? Found at the Marshes, Lydney

Their kind doesn't bite, and in a number that is unbelieveable. I am quite sure its a Midge, but please let me know? Sorry for the photo.

The Sparrowhawk by Lydney boating lake

He's caught a racing Pigeon, but after all, it got away, perhaps it was me, I think that I surprised him. Sorry Sparrowhawk.

The bottom of the Severn Bridge taken at Beachley

It was a gloomy sort of day, but I went out anyway. The M48 didn't take its usual traffic, it must have been the high winds.

Starling feeding chicks

I took this picture back in June '08, I was mopeing about and found this one. After all, it was raining.

Dunnock on the Marshes

I'm back at the Marshes, looking for a Kingfisher or Little Grebes, but I can't get a photograph of them. It was a lovelly morning but, there weren't any of the two birds.

Common Darter at the Marshes, Lydney

It was a beautiful day, but, it was cold................brrrrrrrr. It seems that it became colder as the day went on. I didn't take into account the wind.

Greylag Goose at Lydney boating pool

I had a meeting with Dave Morris from GLS, to discuss the fence and the gate (which is locked), by the Docks. It stopped me, (and many more who can't get through for certain reasons), going there. It's a most beautiful site. And, there are many birds, the Dunlin, Green Sandpiper, Oystercatcher, Water Pipit, Turnstone and Wheatear. Why then, can't we go and see them?
