Blue Tit at New Fancy

It was dark and dreary today, the pictures didn't come out very well. Maybe it will be a better day.

Mistle Thrush (Wild Lydney)

Back to the birds. Have you been to the RSPB's Big Garden Watch. I am sorry, but it only for Britain. Maybe everone in whole world could do it?

Glass Wing (greta oto) butterfly

I didn't go to Mexico or Panama to get a pic of this lovely butterfly. No, I went to Symonds Yat (east). It is great to be out. But, it was a morbid day again, which made it less photogenic. They lost most of their stock, because they were cold winter, so there wasn't many butterflies. I shall go there later.

Blackcap (photographed in 2009)

Yeah, your right - it was in the spring of last year. I went to take my son for a birthday treat in the pub, he had two pints of ale, I drank one.....I'm driving! We aslo had a meal, he had a normal lasagne and I ate (vegetarian) a stilton on vegetables bake. I didn't find any stilton, but it had some cheese. Anyway, we enjoyed it.

Just two of the Tits (New Fancy, Forest of Dean)

Two Coal Tits
A Great Tit
I was going to stay at home because it was foggy, but I thought that if I just go upwards to the Forest, where there is a possibly some sun. And guess what, it was brilliant sunshine.

Long-tailed Tits

We had plenty of sunlight in the Forest of Dean, but I went to Cirencester, where there wasn't any. Drat! Never mind, it was worth doing, because I saw my mum, dad, bruv and his lovely wife.

Demoiselle Crane at Slimbridge WWT

Such a beautiful bird, a member of the Crane family. Standing, flying and even sleeping it is wonderful. I brought another one from the vaults of the living, since I am bored with this awful weather.

Mallard Ducks (Lydney)

Now for the weather from your disrict:
Snow, hail and rain. But with no sign of the sun.

Goosander (Lydney recreation grounds)

At first I couldn't get very close, because it is icy, but
I got it. It's a bit bad, focusing you know!

Nuthatch (Forest of Dean)

Yippee, we were let in to all the Forest of Dean sights, no more signs that read "this sight is closed due to the weather" or something. It has been about a month, I think.

Buzzard behind an industrial gate

I can't brag about that one, he/she is behind the gate, and it wouldn't be any use to move away photographically to get rid of them. So, I did my best.

Great Spotted Woodpecker (Forest of Dean)

The snow has gone, almost. It is pleasing for someone who can't get around very well. So, goodbye to the snow. I know that there are a lot of people that loved the snow, so I will say, dear old friend, we will see you again.

Buzzard (Cyril Hart Arboretum, Forest of Dean)

After the snow, there is of course, a land of slush. Which is the best? Well, we can only think that we're on the road to spring, woopee!

Yet another snowy day.

Meadow Pipit
Great Tit
These photographs were take on a sunny day, oh, I do hope for it again!

Wildfowl for a change?

Barnicle Geese
Common Sandpiper (not a wildfowl)
Coot (One of the Rail family)
I went out, shopping! The first time since it was snowing. And, weather people say that it is only a short respite, and it shall be snowing again. Sounds like a clergy who is practicing for his/her sermon.

Goldfinch standing up with its feed

I was still at home all day, and bored! And, I am running out of photos. I will go into my archives, that itself is running out. I will have to send some of me...............
