January Flicks

It’s been a long, hard month. I was lucky enough to get a lot of photos at the beginning of the month during a new years trip to Devon. I went to RHS Rosemoor and they had a fantastic Winter Garden which I’d highly, highly recommend. It was such a relief after months of Winter…

April Flicks

A belated post, apologies. The end of April was sunny and beautiful. The Blackthorn blossom burst to life like frothy clouds. These hedgrow bushes are the preferred egg laying plants for some of the hairstreaks, black, white, brown. The black can only be found in one small area, part of which is in Oxfordshire, so…

Signs of Spring

I’m hoping this will serve as a bonus post (providing I can get some more shots later in the month) to make up for the limited photos in March Flicks. Last week there was one day where the sun shone without a cloud in the sky. I went for a walk up on Barbury Castle…

February Flicks

It feels weird to sit here posting this late. My February photos are all of the first signs of Spring, and then March 1st brought a blanket of snow. Everything seems to have been put on pause. Let’s hope Spring returns soon! In the meantime – I hope you enjoy looking back at February’s flicks!…

December Flicks

In the nick of time! My last post of 2017 showcasing the amazing snow we had mid December. I’ve never seen snow like this. I was lucky enough to randomly wake up at about 6.30am on Sunday and peep outside. Realising how much snowfall there was, I waited for it to begin to get light,…

Hello September!

Welcome to a bonus blog post sharing my September 1st Hike. We walked from the Purbeck Marine Nature Reserve, in Dorset, along the South West Coastal Path to Lulworth Cove. Access to the Nature Reserve is via a toll road. If you’re into snorkelling they had a snorkel trail, but if not, I’d recommend parking…

August Flicks

It hasn’t felt a lot like August this month; so many grey days. When the sun has come out though, it’s been perfect. I’ve had some great days out this month, rolling around in the grass chasing after butterflies. I picked up an excellent book by the Berks, Bucks and Ox Wildlife Trust at a…

July Flicks

Sorry for being so MIA, I’ve just been moving house. And with that has come the usual lack of internet/time/energy for creativity! But I’m settled in now, and ready to get back into it. I continue to post as regularly as I can on my instagram though, please come find me @nature_flicks_ July was a…

May Flicks

May! We’ve had days, at last, where it truly feels like Summer is around the corner. Here are some photos of what I’ve seen whilst out and about this month. On the flower front, May is a month of Purples. The Wisteria came out, shortly followed by carpets of Bluebells.   These bluebell woods were…

April Flicks

We are now firmly into Spring. The sun is out, and our gardens and countryside have sprung back into life – barely recognisable from their barren winter state just a few months previous. You’ll see plenty of butterflies now the flowers are out. So far this month I’ve seen: Orange Tips Brimstones Peacocks A Red…
