Spring is springing

I can't believe that it is nearly April and I have only posted three entries this year so far! Life is good, but busy for various reasons, and leaving little time to get out with my camera. To make matters worse my local park had a pollution event last year which has killed all the fish in the river and driven away a lot of the wildlife. No kingfishers this year I fear.

But things are looking up and spring has brought return visitors, including a welcome return for the grey wagtails. Low water levels are encouraging them to feed further upstream than normal giving me a great vantage from which to watch them. Hopefully will get some better shots than this soon - but here is one to keep me going.

Grey wagtail

In other news I have a rather exciting trip planned for later in the year. Watch this space!


  1. That's a beautiful small bird ! Well taken.

  2. Very lovely entry, but you have been missed. How very sad about the lake being polluted so badly, better times, I hope~

  3. I really enjoy coming to look at your blog, to look at your stunning photographs and to read your tales.
    I love the photograph you have taken here of the grey wagtail, it's a bird that always puts a smile on my face during summer.

  4. Well that's already a nice picture... I've been quite busy too, but the main barrier over here was the bad winter ;-) Good luck for the coming springy weeks...

  5. I am so glad i found your site. Fantastic photos - thank you!!
