My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

This and that....

I've been a bit distracted with one thing or another recently and haven't managed to get out with the camera much; mostly this is because of all the wet stuff.

The other day I had a walk in Bushy despite the rain! This handsome chappie was having a snack and his antlers are beginning to look beautifully velvety - getting ready for the Autumn rut.

This Acer looks as though it's getting Autumn colour too; don't know where we are with the seasons at the moment!

At the London Wetland Centre today this young Tufted Duck (one of two) was preening on a lily leaf after bobbing up from the water. How they manage to dive down, and stay down, given they are so light, is amazing!

And we saw a Kestrel fly over the hide; rushing outside I just managed a shot (totally inappropriate camera settings) before it flew off.



Well folks (as they say) that's it for the moment; hopefully life will get back on track before too long.....

Great shooting Tricia, the deer is especially good.

The little tufty on the lily pad is great.
Looks like he's impersonating a frog lol

Beautiful photos and enjoy seeing the deer in its natrual environment rather than here as a feral animal.
