A couple of days at home in Halesowen hunting a wren who has built her nest under the cover for our outside water tap.

Despite the comings and goings of many grandchildren and their friends and Bob's repair work AND the constant gardening the little wren has persisted with nest building and is now feeding her chicks. She was NOT keen on being photographed so we have spent several days stalking each other. She creeps and crawls and climbs to get to and fro her nest . I spend hours stalking her to get a snap. These are the final results as I think the chicks are nearly ready to fly.

Welcome to my Blog

I am a keen amateur photographer living in the heart of the West Midlands in the UK.

 

This is my personal blog which I use as a way of keeping my family and friends in touch with my various trips and projects.

 

My husband and I are keen walkers and also travel extensively both in the UK and abroad.

 

I'm sure there will be some interesting times to be shared in this respect.

 

Comments aren't allowed because as a busy Wife, Mum, and Granny I simply wouldn't have the time to moderate or reply to them.

 

I do hope you all enjoy these little snippets of our various forays.
