Woolly Jumpers

From the Archive

It will soon be time for woolly jumpers.

Shot earlier this year these Ewes were resting and eating on a sunny afternoon.

Boats and Boats

Weymouth Marina is one place I can stand outside the car and take a few shots.

Temporary Change To Blog Posting

My Blog Posting will change for a while.
I have developed a physical problem that prevents me from walking any useful distance. 
This will require medical intervention and a degree of recovery.
So a lot of bird and nature photography is not possible for me now and I will only be posting occasional local scenes for the time being.

I will be back with all of my usual posting at some stage.
I will of course monitor and comment on your posting as usual.

Lodmoor Visit

My images from a recent visit to Lodmoor Reserve, Weymouth.

Things are beginning to improve at Lodmoor in respect of bird life. The first of the winter gatherings are now happening.
Canada Geese have returned in some numbers along with Black-tailed Godwits. 
Regular attenders such as the Great White and Little Egrets are also visible.

From a distance I witnessed this Great White homing in on a fish of some kind.

Blackberry Eaters

Butterflies currently on the wing.

Two Species that can be still found at this time of year are; the Comma (resident species) the Red Admiral, (migrant species). 
The Comma can be found all the year around. 
The Red Admiral from March to the end of October.

A good place to find both species now is on Bramble bushes feeding from the over ripe blackberries that are a feature of the hedgerows at this time. 
In fact it is the only place I could find them on my recent local walk.
