As we are enjoying the milder weather this January, on looking back to last year, January was chilly but not as bad as the month of February which turned bitterly cold as the Beast from the East visited upon us.
This Oyster Catcher was taking a dip in the icy waters of the river Tweed here in Innerleithen. I love to hear them arriving back in numbers, usually at night, with their peep-peep piping as the arrive and so I used this as my January image for my Limited Edition, 2019 Desk Calendar this year.
I am looking forward again to their mass return and the herald of Spring, though I do know that winter is not finished with us yet!
I provide photography walks and training to anyone interested in learning and am looking forward to meeting those who bought Vouchers from me at Christmas for lessons in the near future.
