Birds and their song survey
How many of these birds have you seen? You often see more birds in the winter than the summer, there isn’t much food around and the days are shorter so they have to spend more time finding things to eat. There are also fewer leaves in the trees for them to hide behind. Can you hear any of...

Right now, right here in the UK starlings, geese, ducks, wagtails, rooks, waders and other birds are performing a natural spectacle above our heads.

Euphoria for all
The unbridled joy of witnessing night after night of national pride, the full frontal exposure to the best of humanity, has left me wanting more. As a confirmed curmudgeon I do not normally indulge my tribal side, but I was lifted-up and carried along on the shoulders of giants as the Olympics and...

Crab Apple (also known as Malus)
Crab Apples grow on our farm which is based near Worcester. These were covered with a sprinkling of snow but still made great Crab Apple jelly.

Ducks on a cold foggy day
My photo shows a flock of Mallard on the Leeds-Liverpool canal in Lancashire. The area shown is locally known as Johnsons Hillock. I think this picture captures the atmosphere of a cold, foggy day in Lancashire. The ducks complete the scene by giving the picture a focal point for your eye to pick up...
