Oasis Of Wildlife At Lecropt

Lecropt Is An Oasis of Wildlife,

When Other Places Fail, It Doesn’t !

at Lecropt

Lecropt is one of my favourite places on my journey when cycling to and from the River, each day I observe various and different Wildlife while having a rest on my returning journeys.

The countryside of Lecropt has an abundance of Wildlife and various species of wild plants and trees.

The photos I have posted have been taken souly on the land of Lecropt over a couple of days, the most popular bird which it’s famous for, is the Lecropt Buzzard’s, which can be seen soaring above the woods on ‘Hangman’s hill’,  (aptly named).

Many years back Lecropt was a vibrant community, having their own laws , school and church, self governed with its very close and tight community.

(Vulpes vulpes)

A couple of nights ago I spotted the Foxin a field below the church, one minute it was there the next it had vanished into the long grass I managed to get the camera out quickly and got the one shot.

As soon as I got home I couldn’t resist getting out the brushes and canvas , and started painting a Red Fox,while it was still fresh in my mind. What you see in the photo of me next to the painting, is the first layer of paint, and has lots detail still to add but when I finish it, I will post the finished painting on FWN.

The Fox inspired me to paint.

The Red Kite which is my first of this species and the  Common Spotted-orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) I photographed today on my return journey home, so if your ever wanting to see a bit of Wildlife remember the name Lecropt, my little Wildlife oasis, which never fails me, when in other places does fail me for getting that photo.

  1. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was
    just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin
    or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so
    any support is very much appreciated.

  3. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

    1. Hi their
      Many thanks for your kind comments and its wonderful that you like our wildlife news blogs , I have no problem clearing my head for thoughts, especialy when I am surrounded by wonderful wildlife and beutiful surroundings, but if I do get in a stick, I put on some classical music and start painting, that usualy does the trick, and just write what you think, I do it and it seems to work, only thing I do is summarise the finished article and tidy it up by deleting unessasary words, hope this helps, keep wildlife watching
