|Red Deer in Silhouette|
I've finally finished editing and uploading to Youtube the video I shot of Red Deer on Wednesday [Rutting Red Deer Photography] , firstly sorry it has taken me a week to get sorted, I'm not the greatest editor when it comes to video (in fact I'm pretty rubbish and using the most basic software out there) the sound is not the best (sorry only have the cameras internal mic) and you can hear quite a bit of my jacket rustling (I've cut out my text messages!), but whatever happens you can still hear all the bellowing (or Bloving as I believe it is called).Anyway I hope you like my Red Deer Video.
|Grey Heron in Silhouette - Manor Farm, Milton Keynes|
After cycling over 14 miles yesterday and falling off my bike for the first time since I was a child I planned only a quick walk today, the aim was to see if a Stonechat reported to me on here was still around and hoping to pick up a few winter birds for the patch list, alas there was no sign of the chat and due to some work going on at the farm (digger at West end and two large rock trucks going from one end to the other on the south side) there wasn't much about at all.

Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers by Bob Gibbons | Paperback | Waterproof PVC cover | Mar 2013 | 192 pages | 180 colour photos | ISBN: 9781780092614 |
Wild flowers are something I often photograph, and enjoy the look of but have absolutely no idea what I am looking at most of the time, so this guide has become one I often chuck in the bag in the summer months. Before I get into the meat of the review of this book I would like to point out one thing, and that is; when it comes to pocket guides the important thing you really have to remember is that they are not always going to be the best guide to identification the world has seen, they are designed mainly for portability and I certainly like that element of these small books, this one is easy enough to slip into any pocket and light enough to barely be noticed, if you are looking for a book that will adorn your shelves and be used as purely a reference book never leaving the house, I'd advise looking away from pocket guides, that is not what they are for. Anyway on with my review of the Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers by Bob Gibbons.
