Clive's Countryside Blog: Feb 12th

After a few days of wind and rain it’s good to see the sun come up once again - I thought we’d been forgotten. The first half hour is special. I can hear a woodpecker tap tap tapping into a tree, pheasants squawking as they begin to defend their territory and the countryside just waking up. I’ve a mug of tea in my hand and, although it’s a bit chilly it’s good to be out in the fresh air.


In 2006 Choice travel photographer Clive Nicholls moved from a home in the city to a small village in the heart of the countryside. Thirteen years on and he’s still learning the country ways and every day brings a few surprises.
