River Gelt Photography - xmas day

A trip down to the river Gelt on xmas afa before fodder to do some photography along the stretch. Came across an impressive waterfall to start with which is normally just a trickle but emulates the persistent rain in the last few days which encouraged me to go down with the camera and do some slow shutter shots to capture the strong current in motion.

Wildlife sightings included 3 Roe deer, Treecreeper, Woodcock, Grey Squirrel.

A v good xmas day with the family. 5 billion spent on presents in the UK on the weekend before xmas, imagine what the human population could do for our deteriorating planet with all that wasted money on a mythical celebration...shame.

Boxing day and headed to the Scottish coast with friends Andy Mc and Rachel.

Wildlife sightings on the Scottish Solway at Balcary included Peregrine, Raven, 15 plus Fulmars, 30 plus Guillemots  Raft of Common Scoters 50 plus, 5 Whooper Swans, Teal, Buzzard, Linnets and feral Rock Doves.
