A square patch of grass grows before the field is turned for new crops. Photographed with the Fuji XT20 converted to infrared.


A short break to West Sussex over a very wet and cold Easter weekend. Staying in West Marden where the Victoria Inn serves excellent food and drink.

The next village along is Rowlands Castle with a very good tea room called descriptively 'Tea on the Green' !

Late snow was a reminder that Winter was not yet past.


The female Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) was back at the stream. But there was less sign of the Barn Owl (Tyto alba) in the local fields.


The Barn Owl continues to hunt in the local fields. I make occasional trips over to the stream to see the Kingfisher and the Moorhen.
