April 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on Red Squirrel

I’ve done a bit of trawling through pre-website photographs, and found some of a red squirrel, taken at Skygarth Farm, Temple Sowerby, Penrith, Cumbria, UK in the summer of 2006. You can view these on the unsurprisingly named Red Squirrel page.

April 7th, 2009 · Comments Off on Goosanders on the River Wharfe

A very enjoyable couple of days spent in Wharfedale included a very pleasant walk along the River Wharfe upstream of Grassington. A pair of goosanders was quite unconcerned that we were close by, and we were able to watch them for about twenty minutes. Some of the resulting photographs are posted on goosanders page.

Hawk v Pigeons

December 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on Hawk v Pigeons

Walking past Bulcote farm buildings this morning, the birds which perch on the roofs of the farm buildings suddenly flew off, looking a bit like flocks of starlings getting ready to roost. But one bird was flying differently from all the others; this was a hawk. For five minutes or so, it tried to isolate […]
