Lockdown Walk - Extended

During this Lockdown walk I went further into my Summer Country walk.

I was able to get close to this Little Egret as it was fishing in a small tributary to the local river. This involved poking my lens through a hedgerow.

Male Dunnocks are now singing loud and clear from open perches, a sign of Spring to come.

More agricultural activity. 
This involved sowing wheat seed with a drag harrow and seed sower.
The Gulls may be thinning out the seed somewhat.

I am still not able to get close to Grey Wagtail this year as yet.
I have certainly observed quite a few already, but nothing close.

Even the Bullfinch are not being that helpful and only briefly showing.

You can hide Mrs Stonechat, but I have already photographed you the other day.

On a good note, the Yellowhammers are getting closer.

The Cock Pheasant didn't hang around for long though.



  1. Those egret and wagtail photos are so beautiful

  2. Hi Roy, beautiful landscape and birds. Some of the birds we have in the Netherlands too. The yellow hammer we don't see in our area. Greetings Caroline

    1. Thanks Caroline, yes Yellowhammers are lovely birds.

  3. Hallo Roy,
    Wat een prachtige landschappen! Het moet heerlijk aanvoelen daar te wandelen!
    De vogels staan er ook geweldig mooi op.
    Je header is ook schitterend!

    1. Bedankt voor die vriendelijke opmerkingen Maria

  4. Hola, Roy. Un placer volver a visitar tu bello blog y conocer un poco mejor tu Naturaleza. Me ha gustado especialmente el Faisán, es precioso. Esperemos que esta próxima temporada podamos salir más y fotografiar nuevas especies de mariposas. Un abrazo desde Asturias.

    1. Gracias Belén.
      Es bueno saber de ti mi amigo

  5. Hi Roy. I particularly love the little egret! Also I like the ploughing, reminds us that everyone is preparing for spring. Bring it on!
