Gorse in the Forest of Dean

I'm always going on about the weather, but today was good day. Would you believe it, I didn't take a picture worth this blog. There were some times I could have been faster, like the one that I went up there for, Common Crossbills and a the trees. But I didn't!!!!

Common Crossbill (Boys Grave)

These are the most terrible pictures that I had taken, but they were there. The first I had seen before. The weather was so bad, I wasn't very lucky. Well, I'll go up there sometime and shoot another roll............or whatever you might say about the digital.

Speech House Woodlands

This one is absolutely hungry. He knows what it is and so does the other spider standing very still, because he's the one.
Speech House Lake. Funny thing is, there is nothing lurking about, swimming or human beings fishing.

The Holly and the Ivy........................................................................

Creeper, I think??
It was a lovely time, nice & cuddly, but there was no birdies to speak of. But, I'll let go, cause I'm going up to the forest tomorrow.

Tufted Duck (Number 2 pond, Harbour Rd)

On the way back from birdwatching, I saw a Tufted Duck. Strange thing about him was, he didn't have any mates. Maybe he was waiting for all of them to come?

Boys Grave, Forest of Dean

This is a fly, I dont know which one it is, but I am sure it's one them.

The Foxglove is best known for its existence in the mid summer, but it is here, and surviving at the beginning of autumn.
It was a dull and gloomy part of this planet, still, I look forward to it sunny and no wind!

Herring Gull (Lydney lake)

This one is out swimming, when it was cold..............brrrr
It started with a dark and gloomy morning, when I took these photos. Never mind uh.

Nature in the Forest of Dean

This is a spider, but who said that a flying spider could lived in the forest. I saw it happening, honestly.

I don't know what it is.
This is a cirrus cloud.

Small Copper butterfly (Lydney. The Marshes)

This is one of my favourite of butterflies. It comes here between May and September, but, I can't see them until August. It has been reported up in the Forest of Dean, but I could not see them. Well, I will have to search much harder!

Greylag Geese (Speech House Woodlands)

It has been truly wonderful weather, I did have to mention the thing I shouldn't do, but it has been beautiful.
It has been nice for the Greylag Geese, resting, taking a trip on the lake and stopping for a break to eat.

Common Hawker (female) at Wild Lydney

I had very little time to get myself out and photographing, and what happened, but only the pictures that I think was astonishing. Nearly my best effort. At 12.00pm, my bro, Dave, came by and showed me something about photograph, that I didn't know. He is the very good at photography, about the best.
