I picked Brian up at 10.00am for a leisurely drive through the Fylde countryside and out to Rossall Point for the high tide.We were after the action at the wader roost and while set up for the waders we had a suprise visit from a Snowbunting,for 6/7 minutes we tried to capture images of this photogenic bird and Ihave posted a few of my better efforts for your enjoyment.

A few images of Jackdaws and Rooks taken at Lowther Gardens.These beautiful birds are overlooked by so many people,but to me they are photogenic,and I have tried to capture their true colours in the sunshine.

Brian picked me up at 10.00 am for a day out at Leighton Moss,Geoff joined us at 11,30. in the Eric Morecambe hide where we had an enjoyable couple of hours.We visited the grit trays,where I saw my first Bearded Tit,we carried on to the Public and Lower hides hoping for a site of the otters no luck today.We finished off in the Tim Jackson where there was a lot of noise from the stags but no sightings on this occasion.A great day out was had by all three of us. I have posted some of my better images from the day for your enjoyment.

I don't know if these images are of a crow parliment,but this was a vicious attack that could easily have ended in death for the unfortunate bird.I'm a long way from the action so the images are only record shots,but I thought I had to post these images for the story they tell. P S the bird survived.

Friday's weather was much better the wind had dropped and the sun was shining,I decided to go back to Fairhaven just after lunch for the sun to be in a better position.Brian Simon and Jon three photographers were already enjoying themselves catching images of this enchanting little bird.I enjoyed a couple of hours in the company of these photographers capturing images of this little bird.I've cropped these images a bit tighter,as some of my other posts don't seem to do justice to the image,they seem ok when enlarged,anyway see what you think,any advice and comments would be appreciated thank you.

Thursday's weather wasn't much better,but here are a few more of my efforts taken on Thursday afternoon in the company of two very good wildlife photographers. Steve Dolan  and Dave Cookson. www.dave  Please visit their websites for a rare treat. A big thank you for the help and advice they gave me. I've some more images to post from Friday when the light and weather was much better.Cliff I hope the bird stays around long enough for you to capture some images in better conditions.
