A GREAT DAY OUT.

Brian picked me up at 10.00 am for a trip out to Rossall for the high tide,at Higher Bartle a sparrowhawk glided   low over the roadside and up a farm track looking for breakfast.We joined Dave at Rossall the conditions were perfect and the sanderling and turnstones kept us busy with are lenses.A peregrine dived bombed the small flock of birds a couple of times with no success,a great sight to see.We had an hour on the Marine Lake with the tufted duck,mallard,turnstone,and redshank.On to Pilling were a kestrel was at the picnic site and on Cockerham road a snipe was close to the roadside and I managed a few images.Down Gulf  lane a well fed kestrel  was sat on a post and the camera was in action again,further on the little owl was in it's usual place.On the way home a barn owl was spotted  and the cameras were out again the light was fading but we managed  some images of this wonderful bird.A great way to finish a wonderful day,thanks to Brian and Dave for great company.I have posted a few images of the days sightings below for you to enjoy.

That certainly does sound like a great day Martin - right up my street! I live in Higher Bartle so no doubt that's one if the hawks that visits my garden!

Cracking shots, I love the diving and perched kestrel and the Barnies are full of detail - you must have got close!
