Knock! Knock! Knock!
Great Spotted Woodpecker.
The hide at Goodenbergh opened a new world of bird photography for me; birds I had only heard about, seen in the distance or had a quick glance of a species.
Sat in my tranquil hide, I began to see and learn about bird behaviour, bird calls, friendly mating calls, and alert calls for danger.
When I sit in silence, I enter ‘the zone’; it is hard to explain, but I forget everything that’s going on in the angry world. Life just slows down, giving me a sense of peace and calm. Just me and the camera.
I even learnt about the different sound that certain trees make.
The Beech tree
sounding like sea shells
being softly hit
by small waves.
