    Just a few of the Winter visitors to my local nature reserve. The first are Whooper Swans from Iceland. The second is a Water Rail. And the third is a flock of Pink Footed Geese. We had a record count this season of 45,000!

    Wonderful photography! I always love your photos. It has warmed up a bit here since late November, but it should start getting colder again soon. We just bought a new gas heater for the greenhouse and hope to get it installed (if it ever gets here) before the first snow. It has been 'processing' for four weeks now. It is supposed to ship between the 26 Dec and 4 Jan. We'll see. LOL.

    Cheers,

    Oh the joy of living in the Philippines--Don't need heaters, fans, creating humid conditions etc etc as all are the norm here.just wish had far better selection to select from.
