Another shot from this encounter with the newest arrivals to the Forest of Dean. You can just about make out another young one in the background rooting the forest floor, and another one trying to muscle in at the corner in the foreground. There were two sows present - more pictures soon :)
Saw two or three adders today, but mostly they didn't want to pose for pictures. Managed to get this one though, and a couple of very close ones. Always tricky to get a clear view of them without grass and stuff in the way. Found a grass-snake yesterday too, but again, no picture :(
It's taken me two or three weeks to find them, but I've finally found my first wild boar piglets of this year! I got quite a lot of pictures of them, along with the parent sows. It's that time of year again, and I've still got tons of shots from last year that I haven't uploaded!
This was shot late last night in the Forest of Dean (Plump Hill). It was done with 103 x 30 second exposures, so shows just under an hour's worth of the Earth's rotation. A torch was used to illuminate the foreground in the final exposure. If it weren't for the frost that was forming throughout the shoot, the weather was perfect with not a cloud in the sky.
