This week has not been the easiest of weeks. The morale at work continues to be very low which is undertstandable in the face of so much uncertainty. I have also struggled with a lot of emotion relating to family health issues. Anyone that has experienced Alzheimer's in a loved one will possibly understand the effect it can have.
However, yesterday Andy and I took ourselves off to Cannock chase for the day and had a very welcome break from the trials and tribulations to relax with nature. I think I have said before that the locals have fed the birds there for years and as there are not too many natural predators nearby, if you sit quietly, the animals will all come remarkably close.
It makes for ideal photo opportunies so here is a selection from the day:
Long Tailed Tit
And once again a few deer snook up to the birds feeding area in the hope of some for themselves!
It was a wonderful day in wonderful company. I wish you all a very peaceful Sunday :-)
