Hello, it's a new year and a new start for me. As some may know I moved house at the end of last year. I have crossed the border from Somerset to Dorset. Due to moving, I was, unfortunately, unable to get out with my camera as much as I wanted to. Now I have settled and got things sorted I can go out and explore my new surroundings. I have joined the Dorset Wildlife Trust and look forward to visiting their reserves as well as other local places of interest. The first place I have gone to is Duncliffe Wood, owned by the Woodland Trust.
It felt great to get back out with my camera and go for a long walk out in the fresh air. It was a lovely cool sunny winter morning perfect for exploring. Straight away when I got out of the car I was greeted by a friendly robin as I set off into the woodland. The woods are a beautiful place and I was lucky enough to see many different creatures including two woodpeckers, flying around, but unfortunately not so lucky with getting a photograph of them. The perfect to go back and try again at least. I also saw and photographed (see below) Marsh Tits, Robins and a Deer. As well as wildlife I captured a few landscape photographs of the beautiful morning sunlight coming through the trees. I can't wait to go back throughout the year with my camera and see what else is hiding in the wood. Check out my photographs below.
I hope you liked the photographs and I am looking forward to capturing some more in the woodlands over the year. If you have any recommendations for good wildlife places and walks in or around North Dorset, please leave a comment and let me know. Many thanks, Rory
