Who is "Us"?

We are husband and wife, Sandy and Ken and since September 2010, we have been living in Herefordshire, a very rural county bordered by Shropshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and …... Wales! The rural landscape is colourful with rich red soil and the fantastic River Wye meandering through the county and close to the City Centre.

Hereford is famous for world renown pedigree "Hereford" cattle, Bulmers cider, apple orchards, the Mappa Mundi, the SAS, and "Giant Killers" Hereford United Football Club known as "The Bulls" .. what else! The City also had strong "connections" with royalty as Nell Gwynne (the London based retail orange seller) was born in Hereford in 1650.

Sandy is a local government officer and hobby wise she is very involved as a volunteer with Girl Guiding UK. She is a member of the UK Council, a trainer, and was formerly a County Commissioner in Cambridgeshire. Sandy has carried out trainings in Russia, Bermuda and The Virgin Islands.

Ken is a retired Army Officer now employed in the public sector (at least he was when this was started on 31 Dec 10) but who knows what may happen in the aftermath of the coalitions comprehensive spending review. Ken is a keen wildlife photographer ..... as you can see!
This Crested tit was photographed in a Caledonian pine forest - they don't venture down south so you will have to travel to see them but they are fab little birds.

Bird are the principal interest but mamals follow a close second and in particular the less frequently or easily seen of the species such as the Kingfisher and the Otter. It's a bit like fishing the greater the patience then sometimes the greater the reward ... but not always.
This Arctic Tern is a favourite shot and it was taken against a grey rainy June sky on the Farne Islands
Anyone living in the Cambridge area with an interest in photography would be well served by joining the Swavesey Camera Club who meet every Thursday during autumn, winter and spring and provide the most comprehensive programme for members. Visitors are always welcome and not only are they a very friendly group but count amongst their number some exceptional photographers. Leaving the club was just about the biggest regret at leaving the local area.

Anyone interested in Kingfishers in particular take a look at Jeff Harrison's web site. Jeff is a member of the club and the photos on his web site and his Kingfisher Diary are some of the best you will see anywhere.

Back to us! The most important thing you need to know, however, is that we are both ardent fans and season ticket holding supporters of "the Bulls" as they are known. We are to be found at all games, home and away, if at all possible - so it will come as no surprise to find that our first really important web link is here!

We are located at:

Meadow End Little Cowarne Bromyard
