Woburn Abbey Gardens

Just a few photos from last years day trip to  Woburn Abbey and Gardens

As you can see this little chap was more than happy to pose for his photo

His friends were a little shy, though they are very vocal birds

These next shots  remind me of all the secret passages from all the Enid Blyton books I read as a child

It was a great day out, one I hope to repeat as there is always something interesting to see.








Mondays, Tuesdays ………. it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is. I just love to photograph birds.

Sometimes it’s easier to count the family members than others.


Or seeing where they have decided to build a nest this year

Looking Forward

After the Beast from the East I am looking forward to Spring

Because you never know what you may see.

Connecting with the Past

On a very chilly but sunny Sunday afternoon

I took a  quick walk though Foster Hill Road Cemetery Bedford

I was there to listen to a very entertaining talk by author Ruth Hogan (Keeper of Lost Things) but took the time to take a few photos with my trusty camera on my way out.





I often find myself walking around churches and graveyards, the other day I walked through a large cemetery and saw this lovely Angel

Although the day was bitterly cold, the sun was shining and a robin was singing his heart out

Through the Window

I work in a building on the riverbank, and if I glance through one window I get to see……


Waiting to Strike…..

Unfortunately I only had a camera phone to take the pictures.  Usually I would only see one or two (not six) by the boathouse on pontoons the other side of the river.

I often get to see a heron waiting patiently ready to pounce for its lunch, when I go for mine.

As well as Swans and the Canada geese…..


Others too……. like to frequent the river

And then Homeward Bound…..



Don’t forget the Trees

On my walks, be it along the riverbank at lunchtime, or on a birdwatching trip to a local nature reserve or country park; you will always find trees.

They may not always be the focal point of the shot.
