Its well and truly summertime in the UK and for the first week the weather forecast is for scorching hot weather. Towards the end of the month, the schools in England and Wales break for their 6 week long summer holidays and for those of you staying in the UK it's a good opportunity to visit some of our stunning coastlines.

Wildlife Photography In July
July Diary
Your First Visit
There are many coastal Walks which not only give you breath taking views of the coast, but will also get you close to the many Lighthouses and some historical features such as Castles and forts. Down on the beach you can also get close to wrecks when the tide is out, or in the rock pools find small creatures under the rocks sheltering from the heat and waiting for the tide to come back in. You may even come across large jellyfish that have been washed up or see people having fun trying to keep kites in the air. There are many coastal photography opportunities.

If you're more inland you could visit one of the many Historic Houses and Gardens around the country, like Sheffield Park and Garden in Sussex that has water features and colourful gardens and wooded areas. Whilst visiting these places don't forget to keep any eye open for the small creatures like bees feeding on the flowers or under your feet there could be Grasshoppers. In water features, such as ponds, rivers and canals you will also see Dragonflies and Damselflies, all good material for having a go at Macro Photography outdoors, don't forget to take your tripod with you though.

July is also the month when in Berkshire the Mute Swans and Cygnets on the River Thames are counted for the annual Swan Upping.  You will also find pairs of Swans with their young on rivers and canals, or if you are on the south coast and are able to visit Abbotsbury Swannery  near Weymouth in Dorset then you will find large numbers in one place.

So grab your camera and while the sun in shining, the days are longer and there is so much to see and do, go outdoors and see what you can capture.

We are upgrading this website

We are moving from a Microsoft Frontpage based website to something much newer and more flexible, run on our Apple systems. This is a major change and is going on in the background.

Our Windows computer is often difficult to start and we have decided that should it fail, before the new system is live, we will allow a gap of a month or two to occur rather than waste time setting up outdated systems as a temporary measure. So if we go missing for a month or two please check back regularly as we will be back. Hopefully there will be no problem and we will be able, in the near future, to switch over to the new system and as you may have noticed we have been out collecting a vast amount of more information to expand it.

Let's Explain How This Resource Works

Our most popular feature is the monthly diary covering interesting and unusual things on, around the UK, in the two months ahead. Our monthly front page/newsletter, from the beginning, is still available and can be accessed via our 'recent editions' link.

Everything that appears amongst these pages, or ever has, is indexed in a number of ways, alphabetically, by topic, by county, and often linked in to sections. Many of the sections have their own front doorways so people with specific interests have direct access through these doors to their area of interest.

All of our links are coded showing you if it's an external link or one of our own pages and when it is, the type of page it is. A key to the most popular codes is at the bottom of the contents panel on the left and clicking on any of the symbols will bring up a full list. On any page, holding your mouse over one of these symbols tells you what it means.
