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...

AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!

(My post for A Focus On Nature) For 2017, what I would like is Nature Conservation to be taken more seriously by Councils and the Government.  They need to properly see it as a Universal Problem.  It is not an issue only for a certain class system, region, gender, sexuality, age or level of education… Continue reading AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!
