A long weekend of big clouds and storms.
May 27th. 2018.
As the warm May Bank Holiday continues. An early walk around Otford followed by a cool walk by the river and under the trees at Lullingstone.
A walk between the Great Wood and Rowdow Wood above Otford.
May 25th. 2018. A Walk in the Woods.
A walk from Filston Farm, up Polhill Bank and then through Pilots and Meenfield Wood.
The cows return to the fields off Pickmoss Lane.
Local Walks. May 2018.
Walks between Dunton Green and Lullingstone through the month of May. Bluebells in the woods and Spring lambs in the fields. A mixture of infrared photography with the converted Fuji XT20 and colour with the Nikon.
A square patch of grass grows before the field is turned for new crops. Photographed with the Fuji XT20 converted to infrared.
West Sussex. Easter Weekend. 2018.
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.
Trips to Chichester Cathedral and the small historical churches of St Michael at Up Marden and St. Peter at Racton.
The next village along is Rowlands Castle with a very good tea room called descriptively 'Tea on the Green' !
March 2018. Late snow.
Late snow was a reminder that Winter was not yet past.
February 2018. The Kingfisher.
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.
January 2018. A Barn Owl hunts 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.
