Forest Bathing in the Woods of Gwent

  A beautiful Bluebell Wood. This spring I have focused my photography on new areas beyond my usual haunt of Goldcliff Lagoons and have been exploring several wonderful local woods. Life for me is busy at the moment and at times the stresses and strains of life have left me in a real need of opportunities to get outdoors with nature. I am fortunate to have some great woods on my doorstep where I can spend some time "Forest Bathing" to detox and destress from all the hustle and bustle. Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit the woods of Gwent. The woods are full of life. It's like a botanic explosion has occurred with flora and fauna of all kinds coming into life and making an appearance. Walking through the woods is a real sensory experience. The eyes are dazzled with an array of different colours, lots of fresh greens, the whole spectrum of coloured flowers, Yellow celandine, the white of the Anemones, Pinks of the Red Campions, and more yellows from Wild D

Restricted to the garden

The beginning of 2018  has been a uncomfortable time for me due to a bout of illness so I have been a little restricted to watching my garden birds.

The first post of the year then starts humbly with a few pictures I have taken of my garden visitors.

The feeders have been busy with the usual House Sparrows, Starlings, Blue,Coal and Great Tits, Dunnocks, Robins , Wrens ,Blackbirds and Long Tailed Tits.

I love watching them and its interesting to see how they interact with each other and how the pecking order works out.
