Quick look over the heath for half an hour
spotted an angry spitting female that would not
oblige a head shot, I seem to be getting very
good at body only shots. It started out very
overcast hot and humid ,that was ok until the
sun came out and scorched every thing away
including me.Also here is English natures
method of keeping the foliage down with flocks
of sheep, who were also hiding from the sun
as seen in photo what do you think ? the only
other interesting shot was of a gatekeeper
butterfly. I met some E/N rep on the heath
with an East Anglian daily times rep reporting
on the ecology of the heath who asked me a
few questions also my adder notices
I put up a few months ago have remained up

Cheers Rob just a prototype think I might
make some up depicting a few more reps on it
as its just a print out on the laser printer
and a bit of laminating worth it for the few
pence it cost if it makes people more aware
of the decline our depleting wildlifes habitat. another pic of a elusive one yesterday keith

hi keith.

enjoyed your pix and account. great to see shots where you cant see the adders head. it makes you wonder what its doing.

this adds intrigue to the photos in my humble opinion. making them stand out among many VB pix ive seen.

not that i know a thing about photography haha!

i used to be able to ID a few sheep breeds thanks to a shepherd mate who taught me. however, ive long since forgotten many.

are EN using local breeds here? those certainly arent SUFFOLKS. THEY have BLACK faces.

sheep-farming obviously goes back centuries and so it might help a little bit if they used breeds both suited to, and therefore traditional to, the locale.

maybe.

all the best,

ben

Hi Ben the sheep could be white faced
woodland sheep and they had been shorn ,
as to me headless adders I could have pulled
them out and forced them to pose but I dont
like stressing them out to much. keith

Hello. I popped over to Cavenham Heath this morning out of
curiosity and i saw one of your signs
is that the area the best place to see one. I know this
time of year is a waste now. But ive looked at other areas
in West Norfolk and this area looks superb as its huge!

Thankyou. Its meant to warm up later on this week albeit
with a drop of rain. Maybe a few will stir?
Do you see many Common Lizards on the heath? Bet its also
great for Stone Curlew in summer?
