A Country Walk

Another country walk taken on a sunny day, but with a cold wind blowing. 
The first image below shows a view across Barley and Oilseed rape fields.


Apple Blossom

Cock Pheasant

Red Campion

This Wren popped up out of the hedgerow and was quite amenable to a few photographs being taken.







Lady's Smock (Cuckoo Flower)

Three images below of birds that really didn't want to be photographed on this occasion.

Goldfinch

Blackcap

Grey Wagtail

Apple Blossom

On this particular country walk I looked closely at the various bluebells that were growing. It was surprising the variety of colours of the flower. This area of the walk was at least a mile away from any buildings and I believe that all the colours were natural and there had not been any crossover from garden plants.

Below are the variety of bluebell colours observed.







Hawthorn Flowers

Apple Blossom

Early Purple Orchid

Dingy Skipper Butterfly

  5. Really lovely photos, Roy, especially the wren! At our Brittany house we had pink bluebells in our little patch of woodland as well as blue ones. I know they are not the same as British bluebells, but even so, we noted over the years how the bluebells spread and how more and more of them were pink!
