The year has flown. Photographically it has not been a great year. Poor light has dogged most of my trips and poor health has limited their frequency. Nevertheless there were some truly memorable moments. Perhaps the wildlife highlight of the year was witnessing several families of tree creepers feeding their young on the banks of Loweswater last spring. What seemed to be just a fluffy bulge on a tree trunk was suddenly transformed by the appearance of several hungry beaks. I'd all but forgotten it until sorting through some unprocessed photos. I must have spent well over an hour watching them - mostly with binoculars because it was pretty dim. But I did get a few shots including this one.
