A quick plug for a new blog I’ve started. It’s called Caldecotte Lake, and the link is ‘here’. And yea, I’ve spelt it right; it has two 't's' 

It’s my local lake, and as I spend so much time there, I thought I’d try and keep a blog of the visits and sightings.

Right, plug over, back to this one………

Went out early the other day; always the best time of the day. A beautiful sunrise, although its best was soon over.

Even the birds played nicely for a change.

I spent a lot of time in a cornfield; it was so photogenic. Well, I thought so,

I was surprised just how dirty it looked though.

These seed heads of some Honeysuckle made an interesting picture, I thought.

And this pair of damselflies made a perfect heart shape.

And last two pictures are of a Black-tailed Godwit.

A nice pair that dropped in at Wilstone Reservoir the other day.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and if you get a chance, pop over to my local. Let me know what you think

  12. Thank you Dixxe. Those geese really made the sunset a bit different. :)

  13. Wow for the heart shape. Going over your new blog, already following. Anna :)

  14. What you call Corn we call Wheat, here Corn is what you call Maize. Amazing how the english language can be so different in differnt parts of the world.

  15. Thanks Horst. They say English is one of the hardest languages to learn. And you're right, there are so many 'local' differences to the language; and it changes over the year too.
