Wildlife at the Window

I’ve begun to get a few shots of the resident wildlife (albeit marred by window reflections) to share.

It sits within an area of scenic beauty, the coastal village is managed by the National Trust, and the RSPB have a number of reserves along the shore and islands nearby. Continue reading
