Happy New Year!

Here’s a quick blog post to wish all my followers, viewers and much more a Happy New Year! 
2013 has been a very good year for me. I reached over 10,000 views on my blog, I featured in my local newspaper and wildlife magazines a number of times, I spoke on a local radio station about looking after garden wildlife in hot conditions and I brought one of the best pieces of equipment I have so far which was my trail camera, with my trail camera I filmed badgers and the wildlife in my garden on a number of occasions and some of my badger footage featured on BBC Autumnwatch! 
I hope 2014 is just as good and even better!
Thank you very much 

Here are some of my best photographs and film from 2013.


Another walk with my camera.

Last Saturday the weather was still looking quite promising as it wasn’t too cold and the harsh winds were still at bay, so I decided to go for a walk with my camera. Altogether we did about 18 miles, we started at Branston Water Park, went through Barton Marina where we stopped for lunch, had a look around the National Memorial Arboretum then walked back to Lichfield. There was still lots of fungi about and I saw a lot of buzzards hunting. Here are some of the photos I took.

Fun Fungi!

On Sunday whilst taking my dog for a walk around my local church yard, St.Michael’s, Lichfield. I noticed that there was lots of fungus about. At my local church yard there is almost always a wide variety of different interesting fungus. At this time of year there normally isn’t that much about as it is autumnal. At the time I had my camera with me and here are some of the photos I took.
