taken 9 years ago, near to Bournville, Birmingham, Great Britain

Halcyon day on The River Rea
Halcyon day on The River Rea
Birmingham was originally founded on a crossing of the River Rea in the centre of present day Birmingham. Here it flows through Ten Acres, Stirchley at the end of Bewdley Road. Halcyon days - As I walked through some scrub land to take the photograph I disturbed a kingfisher which flew off along the River. All this just a few yards from the busy A441 Pershore Road in a densely built-up area.
