Nobody can inspire you like Mother Nature, and we are here for a short time, I wonder how many of us takes the time out just to watch her create her magic, most of the time seems to be early morning or sunset, :cry:
please leave your comments.

Some nice photos there blindasabat.
I like the atmosphere that you captured, the only thing I would say is that the first picture may benefit with cropping top and bottom (loose a lot of the darkness if you see what I mean.).

I was about to ask where you had taken them, then I read Shapwick in the link :oops: . I haven't stopped off there, but I did visit Westhay a few times upto about four years ago and looking at these makes me want to get out there again.

Thanks for posting.

Hi Arthur,
It's only 2 miles from Westhay, they flooded the area a few years ago, I used to go for a walk just to view the wildlife, on one part there must have been over 1,000 duck and I saw otters.
At Westhay did you see the starlings or should I say did you here them, they say there's over 1 million and I believe it, it's deafening.

Yes, a friend of mine goes there regularly and lets me know when the Starlings are about, normally around January/Feb if I remember correctly and yes, it is an amazing sight and sound, but be careful when looking up :D. Although over the past couple of years they seem to be moving down towards Shapwick, so it could be worth a look out there in the new year.

Haven't been out much for the last few years, just a couple of times per year, have not seen any starlings in large groups, and a definite decline in Roe Deer not one this year, unheard of! seen my Barn Owl and king fisher but to slow to get one, (getting old) got a Sparrow Hawk my God was he shifting just a blur, see if I can upload them.
