Ashridge Estate – Bluebells

I have taken photos of bluebells in the past but only whilst ambling round the countryside.  Therefore, I decided to visit National Trust Ashridge which claims to be one of the best places in the UK to see bluebells – I was not disappointed: Dockey Wood,  part of the estate, has vast swathes of bluebells, both out in the open and within treelines of the surrounding woodland.  I now understand why Ashridge estate is so popular, in particular the stunning bluebells.  All shots taken with a Nikon D750 and 90mm macro, 24 -70mm and 70-200mm lenses.

Female Kingfisher

I managed to spend an hour following this stunning female kingfisher along the Grand Union canal at Northchurch, Berkhamsted.  She only dived once during this time which was unsuccessful however, she was more than happy to provide plenty of photo opportunities.
