2012 has been an interesting year for me, I have volunteered for my local Wildlife Trust on a Water Vole project which I am pleased to say has received more funding and will continue in a slightly different form next year, I am also a Web Guide for the Woodland Trust visiting and writing about the woods on the Visit Woods website encouraging people to get out and visit woods and make use of the wonderful woods that we have in this country.
I have changed my camera and taken a DVD based photography tutorial written by David Boag which has taught me a tremendous amount and I know that my pictures have improved from 12 months ago and will continue to do so as I learn to use my new camera and apply some of the techniques I have learnt.
My bird recognition has come on leaps and bounds this year though I still have so much to learn particularly in recognising bird song and calls which will help me no end.
I am in the process of closing down my web site natureoncam as it has been taking far too much time and money and I feel that this blog serves my purpose much better.
New for 2013 is a series of walks from my back gate at different times and seasons which I hope will show the changes that take place over time in what most people would consider an unchanging landscape.
The photographs in this blog whilst not necessarily of great quality are favourites of mine taken in 2012 in England Scotland and Wales from January through to December, click on any picture to get a gallery effect.
