January 2018 was a bit of a non event photographically due to a loss in the family. Other than a couple of hours in the ‘pondman shed’ and a lunchbreak or two pointing the camera at some blue tits, I didn’t take many shots.
By February I had decided to get out and do something productive so headed to Warley Place. The site is well known for its snowdrops, so I decided to try some repeated visits to get a selection of shots.
While trying this a couple of long lensed birders walked past, my “good morning” was replied to with a sneer and look of derision. They were probably grumpy because they hadn’t found any hawfinches and baffled by the fact someone was pointing a camera at something that didn’t have feathers!
I thought I had hit the jackpot when it snowed in early March, but when arrived at Warley Place, there had been too much snow and all the plants were buried and flattened down! I came back empty handed that day, but I’m sure I’ll be back up there for more photos in 2019!
