Not at my best so I’ve not walked anywhere so all pics are within a couple of miles of home.
Loads of seagulls are back on the pond heralding winter.
On my daily walk up to see the work at Stret lock there’s always the view back down towards town/
Had to ask Twitter to identify this bird …
… it’s a goosander.
“Full flaps” “Landing gear down!”
#OGP “Obligatory Grebe Pic”
Setting up fireworks for the Rugby Club bonfire.
Sparrows. They and blackbirds are the birds I see most.
There’ll be a lot of Autumn pics, cause autumn’s so photogenic.
This is the Chesterfield canal above Deep lock.
Silver birch up the canal.
Froth. This reminded me of something but I can’t think what.
Gingernuts on the warm laptop.
Sky over the pond.
What you get when you take a picture directly into the sun.
Ripples on the canal; or is it a bathroom window?
Another “sky over the pond” picture.
Pleased with this grebe pic.
Stret lock under repair.
Pudsey outside Greggs in town.
Hard up for subjects so here’s another gull.
Early for doctor’s appointment so walked down to the Priory church. Here’s the gatehouse.
I did say I was short of subjects didn’t I? Some autumn leaves.
Yellow underparts but it’s not a “Yellow” wagtail it’s a …
… Grey wagtail.
Above Deep lock (again).
Leaves on water, With water on leaves.
Molehills on the tiny island between lock and bywash.
Capping stones removed from lock wall. Over a ton each some of ’em. No powered cranes in the 1780s!
Bored with seagulls yet?
Even when I show you more?
Only a sparrow but …
… it is pretty, isn’t it?
Things you can do with “the Gimp” (poor man’s photoshop).
The willow tree on the way to town.
That’s all this week, I’ll do better next.
