Midday most days we go for a walk down the lane next to the cricket field.
At one place there is a gap in the hedge I use to watch and photograph the nearby fields.

A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.

Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
