Down by the Thames in Eton A safari on our doorstep

Although we are lucky enough to travel often, seeking out new things to see and photograph, right on our doorstep in the UK is magical too.

A splash of colour on a gloomy winter's day

Up and down the Thames there are glimpses of blue flashes as kingfishers flit across the water, their feathers catching the sunlight.

Even present dangers.
And ever present friends
Living on the edge of farm land, but still tame enough to come to hand.
Some often seen...
Some rarely seen.
Who are you calling a creep?
The sights and sounds of the Thames.
Out fishing.
Down by the water (or up a tree).
Webbed feet.
Cruel feet.
Soft and furry.
Warming their fur in the sun.
Picnicking on the grass.
Not so soft and furry.
New hatchlings.
The smallest feathered resident
And the smallest critters.
In the water...
And in the trees.
Singing out...
Big doves, and...
Baby starlings
And a little Cockney Sparra
The usual garden visitors...
But favourite of all for the camera
The kingfisher

All these photos have been shot in the area of Eton, and Eton Wick in 2016 and 2017.
