We visited Arger Fen & Spouse’s Vale in Suffolk today and had a good walk around the area. The bluebells are in full flow – I have included a shot of them below – but there were also loads of these flowers around and we weren’t sure what they were, so I took a shot to find out…and ended up really liking the shot, so went with this, rather than the bluebells for today’s shot.
We had a walk around Garnetts Wood this afternoon…this shot was taken just before the heavens opened and we got soaked. On returning home (about 3 miles away) we found there had been no rain at all there!
I’ve taken this shot a few times and never really been happy with the result…here’s an infra-red version…still not happy!
Badger really did not want to engage with the photographer today!
From this mornings walk…he was a very busy squirrel!
AKA 101 uses for old fruit you find in the recycling bin covered in cat food!
Occasionally we get the odd Greylag Goose paying a visit to Doctors Pond and this chap was a fine specimen, strutting his stuff amongst the squabbling ducks and Canada Geese. Sad to report that we are down to 4 ducklings now from the original 7.
On my way back from Great Yarmouth this evening I stopped off very briefly at Covehithe in Suffolk to have a look at the trees that have been sucked into the sea by erosion…as you will see, in the part of the coast I was on there really wasn’t much to see.
We took a quick trip out to Perry Green this afternoon to see how the Bluebells were doing. Whilst it’s still a little early in the season, I can conform they are doing well but there are still more to appear!
Despite dire warnings of cold weather and rain today, we ventured out in the morning and visited, for the first time in a long while, West Wood, just outside Thaxted. It was a lovely, bright mild morning…thanks weather forecasters! Lots of new growth was everywhere including the common spotted orchids that abound here. They are still a little young at the moment so today’s picture is of some new Forget Me Not’s that are starting to emerge.
