Walking through the woods
#1
Me and my OH take the occasional walk through some of the woods and country parks in the area. In the past week we ventured back to a woods where we used to regularly take our ferret for a walk (we used to get some strange looks and questions Big Grin)
Anyway its the first couple of times we’ve been there in about 6 years. So while we were wandering i thought i’d take some photos. I remembered to take my lenses today just for a bit of fun Big Grin
I’ll admit not as impressive as the open fields of Holland, but its lovely to walk around.
On Monday we seen a few squirrels and a group of muntjac deer and ended up in a part of the woods we’ve not seen before, today again plenty of squirrels and another group of muntjacs, one we heard barking or howling!
Also seen one of the resident red kites circling (there are loads around here, i see more kites than buzzards!), couldnt get a pic of him! A small mouse/shrew, we’re not quite sure as it was tiny and skipped off at an impressive pace although it never full came out of cover. And finally (when we were trying to find the source of the barking!) we managed to sneak up and scare a female roe deer.
Anyway enough of my babbling anybody else enjoy wandering in their local woods? What have you seen?
And finally hopefully you’ll enjoy the pictures Smile
Guide: 1-4 random trees including a tree thats grown multiple branches straight up, 4-8 some open scenic shots, 9 macro filter on a flower, 10 tree roots i thought looked interestingBig Grin

Fabulous pics, looks very tranquil. Love the knotted roots of the tree, would make an amazing scape for a tank....a very huge tank of course Wink
The blue bells are lovely, our last home in UK was a farm and we owned a little wood, we had a resident fox and the blue bells always came out in spring/summer. Lovely !!

These pics are just as impressive mate.

To he honest I am a forrest and mountian lover. I was born in the wrong country for the last hahahaha.

During a holliday I MUST be in the mountains.

In the east of Holland we have the required forrests. So born in the wrong provence as well hihihi.

But okay, these pics of my aren't too bad.
Yours are awesome.[Image: 75ddd02af493f9bb2231c0803b87af11.jpg][Image: bcf72699c7ea078c4bf67cd09e9bee84.jpg]

There were even more Ian hahaha. I counted 19/20.
These ducks appear to really form a "kindergarten" though. Two parents watch the youngsters of the same age of other parents. Pretty amazing huh.

One of the most beautifuls ducks breeding in Holland! Colors look almost "tropical". Normally a seaduck.

They used to lay their eggs in caves in the dunes. Probably cause of the danger of foxes they moved the last 20 years more and more to the polder "Beemster" to raise there youngsters.
