I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.

Caption: Just 200 or more Swallows out of a group of 2000 on their Africa bound migration, pause to stretch their wings, having spent the night roosting in a crop of Maize they move off almost as soon as the sun is up. They will average 50 miles a day, pausing some days to feed up over marshes, or moving ahead of a weather front to get the best flying conditions. Safe travels little guys!
