#30DaysWild day 5 – Burbage Common

On the way back from the supermarket, I decided to pop to my favourite wild patch – Burbage Common.

I love it there, it’s always full of bird life … except this time. It was quiet, too quiet. I stood looking up and down the small road that leads to the car park wondering what had happened, when a Sparrowhawk swept across the road.

A few short minutes later, the birds began to sing again knowing the danger of a predator had passed. The first bird to pop down into sight was beautiful Jay. Wood pigeons appeared and then 3 Crows few by, a cheeky Robin and a foraging Chaffinch where next. A hungry squirrel appeared and spent some time munching through a pile of mealworms that had been left out for the wildlife.

Definitely worth the detour!

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!

My 2015

My 2015 was a good year, it was also a very busy one!

Choosing a photograph per month to blog was both enjoyable and a challenge. It’s something I’ll be carrying through into 2016.

There were many other photographs that I loved to, so here are a few highlights .

Have a wonderful 2016 everyone!

The Mammals!

I don’t generally photograph many mammals, unless it’s a squirrel, I’m normally too surprised to pick my camera. I had a wonderful moment watching a weasel with its prey this summer, I didn’t photograph it, I was too busy marvelling at it with my own eyes! But I did manage to catch a photo of a handsome Rat, a cheeky Squirrel and charming Fox this year, so here they are!

I must admit I am rather excited to find out what wonderful wildlife encounters I will have in 2015! May your wildlife encounters of 2015 be thrilling and beautiful!
Happy New Year Everyone!
