A Quiet Time

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on this site.  A lot has happened to me and to the world, this time last year the world was a much safer place, but I am not telling you something you do not already know.

As I write this, it feels like its early on a Sunday morning, not coming up to noon.  It is sunny and warm for the time of year, all I can hear (other than my tapping on the laptop keyboard) is the sound of birdsong.  I heard a Cuckoo calling for the first time in many years, blackbirds, thrushes, robins, the noisy magpies, the wood pigeons all make an appearance throughout the day. The sound of a lone car driving by momentarily brings me back to the 21st Century.

I assume the sales of audiobooks and e-books have increased, I have no data, only that I have purchased more titles and downloaded as much free content as possible.  Social media has played its part with helping people keep in touch with each other and the world.

But me, I love to hear the birdsong

Robin Singing it’s heart out

And to look up, to see what is flying by

or what has just landed

Just Visiting

All photos are from my archive (pre lockdown)


Over the wall

I like to take photos from slightly different viewpoints.

I also like to photograph a particular feature of a building inside

and out

and sometimes the traditional shot

even if the trees get in the way.



Have become the Sunday for me in as much as lately I have exchanged my Sunday morning walks for Saturdays.

It is always good to change things around.

You can still find the ‘quiet’

If you take the time to look……



I love to watch birds in flight

Sometimes I am not quite quick enough

or close enough

to get the shot I would like

but I still love to watch birds in flight.
