January is Big Garden Birdwatch time and a gang of Jackdaws turned up to demolish my bird food stocks
This bee found some early-flowering Chaenomeles in February
At the end of March, I spent a few days in and around Tarifa in southern Spain. Here's a view across the Estrecho to Morocco
Tried a bit of pond-dipping in April, and found lots of these guys - diving beetle larvae.
Also in the garden, this maturing male Broad-bodied Chaser perched on a nettle on a May day
In June I somehow managed to take this arty photo of a Blue-tailed Damselfly, which won The Guardian's competition and got printed! Woohoo!
July was the time for Large Skippers and long evenings
While in August, we watched broods of young Swallows in the garden
The summer was over, but there were still Small Coppers to see in September
And October brought its own delights in the form of autumn leaves
We caught some more House Sparrows during ringing in November
Er, here's one I took earlier this month: hard weather in December made life hard for birds
