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

After the Beast from the East I am looking forward to Spring
Because you never know what you may see.
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
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…..

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.
