A Winter Woodcock on the Feed!!

We are lucky enough to own some land with a small wood attached to the property; we often get quite a diverse range of wildlife including some rarer creatures.
After a walk with Monty the dog I managed to flush one of the most elusive waders, so I decided to rig my stealth camera in an attempt to capture this most unusual and little known bird.
Needless to say, I was simply over the moon to have captured this plump sized wader feeding quite happily amongst the leaf litter in search of worms, insects and seeds.
I actually have eight 1 minute videos of this particular lady or gent! Talk about pleased, such luck considering I had chosen just the right place for it to work.

Just a Couple Shots!!

While Her Majesty's Forces are on Leave a Buzzard Stands Guard..

A random rock pool, pretty though!!

A Sunday Walk around the Old Patch..


Mr Heron, some Gulls and a ship

A Long way off and not a particularly great shot but nice to see Mr Stoat


On a rather grey day Sarah, Monty and I decided to go for a walk on our old patch, nice to see a few things but all in all a quiet one. Good to see our local Buzzard's still around and perching on his favorite tree.

Quick Trip by the River..

Grey-Wagtail, rather alert after a fellow wag flew over head calling, it later landed. and they had a chat.

Not the best reflection but nearly, such a pretty bird.

A Sunday walk on the Cliff's.

A beautiful Comma.

Adult Grey Seal - Keeping a watchful eye on the pup below.

I kept a very good distance as not to upset such a cute pup, and more importantly the mother.

A couple of local river birds.

Grey wagtail


Whilst taking pictures of the kingfisher these chaps decided to pay me a visit, and very nice too.
Although I have taken many pictures of dippers before usually in Exmoor, this is the first one i've seen on the Lizard, what a great surprise..

My First KingFisher Shot's.

Just landed... 

Now time to fish.
Sorry Mr Kingfisher, that's a leaf!!! Maybe not such a good spot!!

And rest...

I've always wanted to photograph Kingfishers but have never found the right place to do it and the time! So i decided to make it my mission!
 I did a quick recce of my local river to spot any potential good places for them to perch and feed. I placed two old bits of wood in the mud near a good deep spot on a straight bit of river, which then followed to a bend in hope to slow the Kingfisher down when speeding up and down the river.

On day two, low and behold a willing Kingfisher decided to take up his new fishing spot.
I was absolutely over the moon to capture these images, my heart was beating rather fast in hope he would stay long enough for me to get off a couple of frames.  I took roughly 100 pictures and these are just a few of them.

Location, now a secret..

Detail is not bad considering 1600 ISO at F5.6 1/100th of a second, IS helps.

A Welcome Visitor on the Trail Cam!!

A Surprise possible resident Roe Deer!!

You don't see many deer on the Lizard, but they are around if you're quiet enough!! This was captured on a Thursday morning in our Orchard at 0635. Nice to see, but not good for our fruit tree's!!

Beautiful Butterfly's.....

Large White

Meadow Brown on a Thistle

Speckled Wood

It's been a while since I've been out with the camera so I thought it was about time I started getting back to it. Some Local bird, butterfly and flower's from around the gardens from our property. We have now moved from St Keverne to the beautiful village of Gweek.
