Hello from me...

I'm a newbie to the Cromwell Bottom Blog and I'm glad to be here having seen the submissions!  I'm very lucky to have Cromwell Bottom on my doorstep as I live just off Lower Edge in Elland and I've been walking the area with my family for a good few years now.  I hadn't realised the blog existed until recently so a quick e-mail to Bruce and hey-presto I'm here.

I won't flood the blog with photographs but I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a few shots from the last week.  My daughter (10 years old going on 45) and I were out kingfisher spotting during half-term  and we also spent a bit of time down by the feeding station.

There will be more, I'm so local it would be silly not to get more involved in the reserve and the blog.  Please say hello and introduce yourselves, it'd be nice to meet some kindred spirits.

Welcome Chris, the more contributors the better and please post any decent photos, they are always nice to see. Is your daughter in a Wildlife Explorer group with the RSPB, would reccomend it if any of your kids are interested in wildlife.

Chris Latham said...

Andy, she is a fully paid up member of the RSPB and has submitted photographs of her own to the junior magazine (non published yet but hopeful). We go to Fairburn Ings quite a lot and we're also members of YWT.

Thanks Andy - When is next WEX group and how often are they? I'd be delighted to come along with my little 'un.
