Catch up and Merry Christmas wishes.

An icy Bodenham Arboretum on the 30th November! It was a cold day but still an enjoyable walk in the fresh air!


 
 
 
Meet Lunar who is now delighting visitors as part of the Nativity Scene in the farmyard at the Arboretum.
 
 



The return of the Grey Heron!

The Heron has made a couple of visits to my knowledge. The fish pond is well guarded against the Heron!!

  3. A good catch up post. I hope you had a good Christmas Pam.

    I have just returned to the world of blogging with a new blog A Year on The Common (http://hartleburycommon.blogspot.co.uk/).

    I'm finally got my wildlife & blogging mojo back after giving up the Shenstone Birder blog a few years back.
