Springing along in 2017



A Random mix of images from the Rea Valley, past and present - make of them what you will - there's not always a specific theme, other than -
  • the natural aspect of the area
  • changes over time
  • observation of small details
  • a world on our doorstep
  • discovery 
  • biodiversity
  • people 
  • together with a few urban gems, many of which will never get a mention - 

18th century River Rea near Digbeth- a big sweep on the river in those days rendered the land to the left vulnerable to flooding - 'Floodgate Street' is in that vicinity.
Ten Acres, Stirchley, Butterbur and Cow Parsley with a central sprig of Eucalyptus
Greater burnet on the banks of the Rea at Ten Acres
The guillotine lock at Lifford Lane
Coppice Regrowth at Moor Green
Mistletoe seems to be on the increase in the Rea Valley area, and we're encouraging people to send records to Eco Record
