Wild Walks


Photographs l have taken capturing moments and beautiful scenery alike around the medieval town of Sandwich and surrounding areas in Kent and added to nature and inspiration quotes and accompanied with music.

Sandwich, Kent
I live in the beautiful and historic town of Sandwich in Kent in the southeast of England. The River Stour lies on the edge of the town. Originally, Sandwich was one of the Cinque Ports, and we have many medieval buildings here from the original construction time. Sandwich is two miles from the coast, and although once it was a major port in its own right, this is no longer the case due to the silting up of the River Stour.

Gazen Salts Nature Reserve
The woodlands are home to many species of flora also such as primroses, celandine, dog rose, oak, ash, wild cherry, elm, field maple, wild privet, marsh marigold, marshmallow, meadowsweet, black bush, yellow iris and many other exciting plants of interest.

The lake and the waterways in the Reserve are sustained by a sluice gate connected to the River Stour. The waters further feed and play host to a diverse range of wildlife, including species such as sticklebacks, pond skaters, diving beetles, frogs and toads, newts, kingfishers, moorhens, bats, rats, shrews, weasels, stoats, foxes, hedgehogs, moles, water voles, grass snakes, mallard, tufted, pochard and shoveler ducks, warblers, woodpeckers, blackcaps, sparrowhawks, grey squirrels, parakeets and others including many butterfly species too.

  1. Thank you for taking us along with you on your stroll, Rory! And, I enjoyed the lovely music, as well. Regarding WP.com and their quote feature, I had to change every one of them in Eclectic Brew! Fortunately, I am not having the same issue in my .org blog.

      1. It must be frustrating for you, Rory, because your Business blog is multi-faceted. My WP.com blog is still simplistic and I still get annoyed when my content looks wacky because of WP’s crazy ideas.

        I am getting Eclectic Brew ready to switch to the new FSE, which has proven to be a confusing experience.

      2. Yes, FSE is Full Site Editing and is different than Gutenberg editing. I will have a lot more options if I apply FSE to my WP.com blog. I won’t need it on my self-hosted blog because my theme is loaded with options.

      3. Because the FSE themes don’t offer sidebars, etc. for widgets, which I want. One of my fellow bloggers was able to migrate her existing blog into an FSE theme in order to retain sidebars, footers and headers, etc. It’s a process I am trying to learn.
