My photograph of the month for November

The winter nights are drawing in, the weather is getting colder and times are getting harder for our wildlife. Mealworms, sunflower hearts, fat balls can all be an important lifeline to our precious feathered friends.
That is why this hungry Great Tit I caught on camera, is my November pick!

My photograph of the month for October

A long day in Nuneaton was punctuated by moments of urban wildlife. A few minutes on a bench and I was captivated by pigeons in flight. In the air, these birds really can be graceful and elegant in their movement.

My photograph of the month for September

I got a bit of a treat this September, I got to visit Bradgate Park again. It’s been a while since my last visit and this time I decided to walk along the meandering stream. I had the opportunity to have close encounters with swans, along with a wigeon and a raven.

The star of the show however, goes to this very handsome and impressive fallow deer stag!

My photograph of the month for August

It took me a while to choose my photograph for this month. In the few warm sunny days that we have had, I have enjoyed watching many beautiful insects. Out of the many butterflies, dragonflies, beetles and bees, this fuzzy buff-tailed bumblebee is my winner for this month!

My photograph of the month for May and June

Here are my photos for May and June. It’s a little late but June has been quite a busy month for many reasons!

May

On a short walk round my local patch, I found this lovely looking beetle resting on a fence. I was quite taken with it so it had to be my photo for May!

June

Some of you who have followed my 30 Days Wild will have already seen this photo but you have to admit it was a rather lovely sight to see. A cygnet resting on its mother’s back!

My photograph of the month for April

Choosing this month’s photograph was a tough one! All the new life has exploded everywhere!

Flowers, birds and insects have been brought forth by the promise of the sun’s warmth. I have spent a lot of time admiring the gorgeous yellow glows of dandelions that have filled the local grass verges. Bringing colour for us and much needed pollen and nectar to our early insect risers! I have seen many bees like this one, revelling in the pollen provisions of these precious golden blooms.

My photograph from January

January was not only a chilly month, but also full of cheeky and charming Robins! This little beauty landed right in the middle of my path so I stopped to say hello!

My photograph from November and December!

My monthly blog has been a little haphazard this year, as proved by the fact I’m posting November and December’s photos together this month! But I do find this a fun exercise and maybe it is something I’ll carry through into 2017. However until then I’ll leave you with my last two photos for 2016 and wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR!
