Misty Frosty Walk in Toft

My morning walk with Ted was a delight this morning with a heavy frost and mist that came and went revealing different aspects of the views. Final image shows Ted hoping that I will put the camera away and get on with the walk!

Evening in Kings Lynn

For our weekend away, we were staying near the centre of Kings Lynn and took an evening stroll around the town. The Railway Station is a Grade II listed building. Work began in April 2013to restore the station to a 1949 state with British Rail branding and reminisces of the GER and LNER railways. Completed in 2014, the overall cost was under £1.1 million. The 17th century Custom House and the statue of Captain George Vancouver are two of Kings Lynn's best known features together with the austere Minster.

Welney Floods

With water stretching the entire area between the two Bedford Rivers and covering all the paths, the water birds had an enormous area to occupy. Not so good for Waders and perches were almost lacking for Gulls, Cormorants and Birds of Prey. A Cetti's Warbler was happy foraging in the old Teasels sticking out of the water

Whoopers at Welney

Always a delight to watch the Whoopers on their return to their winter HQ and yesterday had the added bonus of very varied lighting conditions from the very soft lighting when there was cloud cover to the brilliant side lighting in the sunshine. The Whoopers must feel very much at home as, at the moment, the area between the two Bedford rivers is flooded. Images of the landscape and the other inhabitants to follow

Cambridge Autumn Colours Fungi and Kings Chapel

A few images from a cold cloudy day in Cambridge with Debbie trying to work out all the controls on her camera.It was very dull light so very difficult to keep the shutterspeed high enough inside King's College at an acceptable ISO. There was a very impressive clump of Pholiota squarrosa.
