It is difficult to resist converting images of the cast iron etc structures at Dovercourt into black and white images so here a few that I like in different light conditions (all Lightroom conversions).

We visited the Dovercourt lighthouses on Friday evening and morning and evening on Saturday. Here a few of the shots as taken - difficult to adjust colour on my laptop.
The cast-iron lighthouses were built by Trinity House in 1863 and were used until 1917 to guide ships around Landguard Point - when the two lighthouses were aligned it showed you were on the right course.

We are in Dovercourt for the weekend helping run an RPS Walk today so a preliminary wander around Dovercourt and Harwich. Here are a selection of shots in bright clear light. Today we are forecast high winds and showers so it will be a very different experience, so watch this space.

We visited Gamlingay Wood on Friday afternoon (April 19th) and found the display of bluebells just about at its best. For the nature diary, recorded first Red Damselfly (seen in Toft garden on April 22nd) - very early as expected with current hot spell.

A late afternoon display by the male Marsh Harrier at Fowlmere showing the effect of the light from different angles on the plumage. Good to see a Barn Owl (?pair) is using the owl box among the reeds. Not much else other than geese and crows!
