October Flicks

I feel like i’ve failed this October, I just haven’t got out enough. I’ve done some small local walks, pootled around in the falling leaves – but no big trips, no big hikes to really soak up the season. With the hour having gone back today I can’t help but feel I’ve missed my chance….

A Weekend Walk

It’s half term!! I woke up early with an awful headache on Saturday. Blundering around in the dark I took some ibuprofen and went back to bed. But then it occurred to me, that instead of going back to bed, I could go for a walk… Click on the picture below to follow me on…

September Flicks

I managed to fit in another butterfly trip last weekend to a Berks, Bucks and Ox Wildlife Trust Reserve. I saw my first Brown…
