Down by the River Side!

Lazy river — the Nene in Northamptonshire

Standing on a bridge in the early morning listening for nightingales
Checking for cattle egrets.
Noticing the first midges of the year.

All the time watching for the blue flash of a kingfisher:

Busy River — the Afon Hafren (Severn) near it’s source.

Looking for dippers and grey wagtails.

and now calm but powerful.

220 miles further down stream — the Severn Estuary on the English side at Clevedon. We are looking for lunch.

Magic river– Cwm Tydu in West Wales

Deep in the temperate rainforest looking for the way out!
