The beautiful autumnal colours are the theme for the latest blog post. A walk round beautiful Queens Wood and Bodenham Lakes in Herefordshire.

I've become a bit obsessed with ivy lately. In my quest to photograph ivy bees, I've spent a lot of time looking at ivy and have really come to appreciate it. And I'm not alone in this - a host of insects make full use of its autumn flowers. So the latest blog post is a bit of a celebration of all things Ivy!!

Latest blog post is in praise of micro moths. I must admit I've tended to ignore the micro moths previously as being just too hard to identify, but I've been making more of an effort this year to get to grips with them. So this latest post celebrates some of my new-found favourites.

Had a lovely day out yesterday at Symonds Yat on the Herefordshire/Gloucestershire border. Fantastic views, some very helpful people and loads of birds, with a bonus bank vole - perfect! Lots of photos on latest blog:https://toolazytoweed.uk/2016/10/23/out-and-about-symonds-yat/

I've been checking over my moth records in readiness for the end of the Garden Moth Scheme next week and noticed that we'd had quite a few gorgeous green moths lately here in Malvern. So latest blog post is in praise of these little green beauties.

Having seen an excellent idea (from the Wildlife Gadgetman) for a bird feeder made out of a pumpkin, we shamelessly copied it and hung said pumpkin out in time for Halloween. The birds don't seem to have read the memo though and didn't use it until several days later, but we did eventually get lots of videos of a variety of garden birds - some of which I've loaded onto the latest blog:

Mostly quiet in the garden at the moment, but the birds are still providing plenty of interest. So latest blog post is another birdie one from the trail camera, focussing on Stumpy the tail-less magpie and the other birds in our garden - https://toolazytoweed.uk/2016/11/20/stumpy-the-magpie/

It was a cold and frosty morning today in Malvern - perfect for some wintery photographs. Latest blog post full of sparkly, fractal magic!

The end of 2016 is nigh, so I've started reviewing a few things in a moment of calm before the Christmas storm! So first up a project I started at the beginning of the year - documenting the life of the apple tree in our garden. Lots of photos from bare twigs last winter to fully clothed in leaves in the summer and back again.
