This… Continue reading Common Kingfisher on an Urban River

Wildlife in December

Out of the videos I have made, these three videos are definitely some of my 'favourites', as I love Water Rails, Whooper Swans and enjoy feeding the birds, and playingaround in the kitchen.  😀 We were pretty much Frozen Britain recently, certainly in the West Midlands...

About Me

Just a (very) short one, to say:  Finally!  I have an 'About Me' page! 😀  I've decided I will be gradually turning my WordPress into my website, so it becomes more than just a blog!
