Photos taken by myself in and around Midhurst, West Sussex, in the South Downs National Park on a damp windy day in February. The weather didn’t do anything to dampen the complete beauty and peacefulness of woodlands.
I recently spent a couple of nights at my parent’s house in Birmingham. Their garden has always been a hub for city wildlife, I’ve spent many a summer sitting in the garden with the vast array of birds that visit the garden, from starlings and herons on the rooftops, and hedgehogs and baby robins hiding in the grass.
On this particular Saturday I was supposed to be having a study day, but ended up at the window watching the endless wildlife that visited the garden over the space of a couple of hours. Mr and Mrs Fox stopped by, the collared dove sadly without it’s mate, a single robin, starlings, sparrows, coal tits and wood pigeons fighting over the bird food and Mr Blackbird made a few appearances too. There were also a couple of gorgeous feline friends but that’s for another (mad cat lady) post.
Here’s just a few of the best photos I managed to get.
With temperatures well below freezing, the pier closed up early tonight but the end of the sunset behind the rush hour glow was beautiful. It’s rare I love the city I live in but these small moments make me feel lucky to be in Brighton.
