A Walk around Tring Reservior

Had a great walk around the reservoirs at tring. The Grand union Canal gets its water from these pits, and it is the canals highest point. It was easy to see that the water level is well low and you will find a picture in my gallery to show you this. There is a vast amount of wildlife around the area and we took a few pictures of anything interesting. PLease take a look at the gallery for pictures also a detailed GPS planned route we made using iPhone- run-keeper software. There is also a Googlemap to help you plan a trip and some links that explain a lot more about the canal and tring cut. Hope you enjoy them.

Please take a look at the Pictures

Red Kites over Aston Rowant

Went to the great Aston Rowant nature reserve right next to the M40, this is a great place to view the largest british bird the red Kite. The area sits on top of a large hill and is a ideal place for the birds just to fly about looking for food. We must have seen about 20 red Kites also some Buzzards were seen and Kestrels. We took some photos but we were always a distance away from them. Will revisit soon i hope but a little earlier in the day. The place is also awash with Butterflies many both my dad and myself could not name. The area is never sprayed by farmers so is in great shape to support a vast amount of Wildlife.

Please click this link to have a look at the photos.

The farm contains old farm machinery and other things rural. Also large collection of radios and a full reconstruction of a Lancaster Bomber cockpit that is fully complete in every detail. Take a look at the web site and remember that it only opens on the 2nd Sunday of the month, so next open day will be the 11th July 2010. Please have a look at the Youtube Video below i done. I have also included a googlemap for easy directions.

Pitstone Windmill

This was a great little find just out of the village of Ivinghoe lies this old windmill. It belongs to the national trust and i think you can go in it on a sunday. It was damaged in the great storm of the early 1900’s but has been repaired. It will make a great sunset picture for later in the year and i think i will be revisiting it soon i hope. Anyway please have a look at the pictures and i have provided a map for you to plan your trip out with your camera. Also a couple of links at the bottom for some more info if you require it.

Ivinghoe Beacon

After a very large Curry we had a large walk to try to walk it off. We set off up ivinghoe beacon this morning it was very cold so we had to get a move on to warm up. The view was great at the very top and you could see for miles and miles. Only takes 40 min from Deanshanger and about 45 mins to walk around but make sure you rap up warm it does get cold.
