Just to get me in the mood for my rapidly approaching birthday – it’s not one of those big significant round number ones, but it’s not far off – I thought I’d dig out some pictures from the past. A kind of “Living in the Past” sort of post.
On one of my infrequent trips back to the UK I spent some time at Slimbridge, the home of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. This organisation was set up by Peter Scott, whose father died on the return journey from the South Pole. I was sat in a hide when this wood pigeon landed more or less directly outside the window. It’s one of the few bird shots I had to take with a wide angle lens!
It’s not really the kind of bird people would travel any distance to see, but I don’t see them any more so I thought I’d give it a brief dance in the spot light of World Bird Wednesday.

Enjoy the birds
