Mountaineering monkeys and shy Sika

December 10, 2016


Well not exactly monkeys but sure footed Lundy goats, who seem to defy the normal laws of gravity. They somehow perch on sheer granite cliffs with a laid-back approach of a Beatnik in a coffee shop; and all to munch on some tasty lichen. Mmmmmmm. Lichen, as we all know, is a composite organism that […]

Maytime Magic

May 28, 2016


With all the Puffin-tastic excitement of my previous post (Puffins & Bluebells) I almost forgot these set of pix of our encounter with the Sika deer herd on Lundy. Amazing the think that all the photos taken in these two blog posts were taken in just four short hours on the Island. Maytime on Lundy […]

Just a few pictures of the hottest week of the year so far, including the ones the BBC wanted to use “for a credit”; no bitching about the – lack of surf, the state of (surf) photography, the sticky nights(!), the overcrowding, the abysmal driving skills of the visitors, the litter, the dog poo or […]

Swallows projeck

July 16, 2014


Part 1. Horse flies bring salad days for swallows. All the biting insects about this summer may be bad news for gardeners and horses but for swallows, swifts, martins and other insect eating birds it’s ‘ happy days’. The European swallow (Monty Python) or more correctly the Barn Swallow, heralds the beginning of summer when […]

Where Exmoor meets the sea

July 12, 2014


The piece of coast from Combe Martin to Lynmouth is surely one of the most dramatic and magical places in North Devon. There’s so much stuff crammed into this little area that no wonder the rich, the famous and the romantics have made this coast where Exmoor meets the sea, their home now, in recent […]
