It's February and time is rushing along. Thank goodness nature knows exactly what's going on The length of day really gets the sap rising and it can be seen in many species as they begin nest building , courting and mating and with young of many birds already fledging young. Except for trees but the display of Black thorn along the roads is stunning.
I also feel more alive as the rain dries up, for a good while we hope, well at least the heavy stuff. The flooding has been devastating for many including wildlife, which can thankfully move elsewhere. But we shall continue to build on traditional flood plains and pay a fortune to insure our chattels. We are a dumb race, no taking note of history!!
So with me up and more or less out of my winter plumage, for now a least, it is back to the business of getting out and about for those shots I am always after.
