January 2014 Lapwing Flight in morning sunlight

Lovely to see these in the early morning.  Difficult to imagine they are on the Red List of declining birds in the UK.

January 2014 After all the rain first sunny day brings out this little fella

It seems to have been raining forever and there has been very little light for photography.  It was the first sunny day of the year and it brought out these Bank Vole's.  Very pleasant to watch them scurrying around hardly ever breaking cover.
