Two Blogs in one day
I'll be happy when May is over with I've only been able to go out 4 or 5 times proper birding this month due to the weather.
Back in April I caught up with the Great Crested Grebes at Mere Sands Wood and above are a few of my better efforts at photographing them


These are the pictures that I should have been taking at Fairhaven Lake this month, but because of the weather it has been impossible to do so.
However these are some I took earlier.

Back to the Trough

Best weather forcast was for Wednesday, so a trip through the Trough A nice piece of history with this Roadsign dated 1739 272 years old amazing

A couple of Oystercatcher images, the first one sat on a nest as bold as brass 30 yds from from the road in full view.
My friend and I had seen  a Common Sandpiper on a previous visit and as I pulled up I saw I saw it sulking away from some vegetation, using the car as a hide I sat and waited for its return and managed a couple of images.
Beetle ID please.

2/8/2010 WHAT A DAY

I had just returned home for a spot of lunch when I saw a flash in the garden, I rushed to get my camera.
                    A HUMMINGBIRD HAWK MOTH.
I got as many images as possible of this rare visitor to Lancashire as it fed on the buddleia, the visit lasted less than 3 minutes then it disappeared over the fence never to be seen again.
Long will this moment live in my memory.
A few of my images are displayed below for your enjoyment
