On the Wild Side

by Cathy Cooper, Twickenham Wildlife Photographer


The Thames at Twickenham is a mighty force of nature. It can rise dramatically flooding the Embankment or disappear completely during the annual Draw-Off. 

In winter, I like to wander down the towpath towards Richmond past bunches of fresh flowers on memorial benches.  Wildlife is abundant from robins and wrens to cormorants drying their wings after diving for fish.

Opposite Marble Hill Park is Hammertons Ferry which is a quick way to get to Ham. Sometimes one of the resident cats will join us for the crossing.

One evening from Eel Pie Island, I saw a blue blood moon lighting up all the boats and barges. Luckily I had my camera with me to capture this special moment.
