Within walking distance from my home a small nature reserve has been created on the edge of Town, a lovely peaceful secluded area of natural habitat comprising of woods heathland and a lake populated by many wildfowl bird species, I guess the whole area covers a couple of square miles and is very popular with dog walkers bird watchers and swimmers during summer heat waves.
So having my camera handy I took a selection photographs also very short video and uploaded onto my YouTube Channel (btw they’re identical views). I’m afraid the ‘vistas’ aren’t as spectacular as Tuscany or the plains of Africa, but they show typical English countryside.
If you were to join the following 7 photographs ‘end to end’ forming one straight strip, you’ll have a panorama looking across heathland and Oxfordshire farmland in the distance.
The YouTube video below the heath panorama photographs, reveals the same pictures but in film format and narrated by me, I’m afraid I managed to obscure a row of nesting boxes fixed on top of posts which attract Barn Owls, and walkers if they’re lucky will see owls circling the heathland feeding for shrews and mice, I’ve been lucky and witnessed what is quite a spectacular sight, I probably stood and watched for an hour, but you have to visit late evening just before dusk.
If you were to join the following 3 photographs ‘end to end’ in one straight strip, you’ll have a panorama view looking across the lake toward heathland, or in other words you’ll be looking across the lake toward my previous panorama……….I’m afraid all the Great Crested Grebe had disappeared…….clumsy me scared them off!
The YouTube video below is of the identical lake panorama filmed at the same time and narrated by me. Not very exciting apart from showing a typical English lake!
