I recently visited a couple of Nature Reserves in the north of the County,the weather wasn`t to kind and the birds were few and far between.At the first reserve a distant Osprey was seen but photo opportunities were limited to a couple of record shots of the lizards on the boardwalks.At Leighton Moss I visited the public hide and a few dragonflies were buzzing about and I kept myself entertained trying to capture images of the Migrant Hawker in flight.I`ve posted a couple of my better images below.

This summer I`ve made a few early morning trips to Preston Dock with the plan to  try and capture images of the common terns returning with fish to feed to their young.I was in particular trying to capture the eye contact of the bird and fish this as I found out was very very difficult and after trying lots of different methods the one that suited me best was with a smaller lens hand held, concentrating on one returning bird and trying to get the exposure right was a challenge.I`m pleased with a few images and have posted a few below.
