Butterflies & Bees Etc………..

While Flickr is behaving I’m making the most of it!……. most unlike me to post two days running, but I have a little time and I can actually post pictures too!…..:)

Yesterday was one of the few days this year where we didn’t need three layers of clothing, we decided that Pound Wood could be worth a visit as we haven’t been for a while and there is often a wealth of wildlife…………..

The Bees were real busy!….. they have struggled this year with the cold hanging on for so long, It is good to see them around!….:)

The Orange Tips are back as well, these really are manic, you just have to wait for one to settle near you to be able to take a pic, I’m sure they enjoy leading you around if you chase them!…..:)

Then our old friend the Pearl Bordered Fritillary showed up, most obliging too, seemed quite happy to pose for a minute or two!…. really liked that dandelion!…..;)

This is a pic from a  while back now, the Nuthatch!……. at Severn Valley Country Park we’ve found a couple of places where these will be happy to land quite close if you bribe them with a few suet pellets!…. they are quite vocal though!……….hehehe

The last of the snow!……….. YAY!….

……….and the first signs of spring!…. late it might be, but very welcome all the same!………

 

Have a great weekend!………………;)

Atcham & Attingham Park

This post has been a long time coming, our weather has been wet enough to keep me glued to the computer and go out only to work, the camera was getting lonely!…….

Being in need of some shutter action we went to Atcham on saturday, where the River Severn crosses the road, there has been so much rain lately the river was quite high and very dark and moody!………

Attingham Park is only a stones throw away and both of us are National Trust members, it would have been rude not to visit their garden and check out the Bluebells…..;)

& other “Smiley” flowers!…..:)

In the courtyard the Goldfinches were busy too…..

…..and the Blue Tits were having lunch!……….

Even the Orange Tips seemed to be out enjoying our first sight of the sun for a week or more!………

most of our butterflies are much later this year, we don’t normally know which way to point the camera in early May, but it is still very quiet out there….:(

Have a good week!………:-)
