pretty futile

16th July 2014, Dunstanburgh shore, 8am

It's all the rage to leave piles of stones on beaches etc.

It's pointless but pretty - especially nice when it's done with a bit of artistic skill...

flowers and burying bugs

3rd July 2014, Low Newton, 8am

A nice walk with Neil today: We looked at landscapes and wild flowers and things.


A sexton beetle. Nicrophorus interruptus we think by looking through our big book of creepy crawlies. A sexton is the person in charge of a graveyard at a church and these beetles are named the sexton beetle because they bury dead animals birds etc and then their larvae consume them underground. These and other burying beetles are the reason there aren't more dead birds lying around the countryside (if you've ever wondered). Bonny and useful....

friendly farms

1st July 2014, Howick, 8am

Bright and warm again down at Howick. Waves glittered in the morning sun.


I spotted a cowrie shell which was a nice bonus.





Howick Seahouses Farm is a member of the Environmental Stewardship scheme so they have nature friendly crops.  This field of barley was full of wild flowers with bees feeding happily.  By harvest the barley will have risen above the flowers.

One Wet Day, Two Sunny Days

24th June 2014, Howick, 9am

Andy's training course and we headed down to Howick.  It was drizzly so we sought out textures and things that looked good in the flat light.

25th June 2014, Embleton Bay, 8am

Bright and sunny for Ian's training.  The sun was sparkling off the water of the Skaith


This "Bloody Cranesbill" was in the shadow of a fern.



26th June 2014, Low Newton, 8am

Another sunny day and Daisy took to the water to cool off.


Once she was damp she was more comfortable running around...

Daisies - two different kinds

18th June 2014, Newton Point 4pm

Today started chilly and I had a fleece on for this morning's Training Course on the beach. By this afternoon the sun was out and it was beautifully warm (19 C Oz readers).
