Early morning visits down to Newton Marsh is certainly the best time to photograph this beautiful wader to show it in all it`s splendour.I visited the Marsh plenty of times in the month of May and managed to capture a few images in wonderful light and have posted a few of my favourite images from my sessions down on the Marsh.

A small colony of sand martins try to nest every year at Cam Brow in the Trough of Bowland,the site is very precarious and sometimes ends in disaster for the martins.Last week I visited the site and found one of the nest holes that had gone into the bank at an angle,unfortunately part of the tunnel had given way and the nest was exposed showing 5 young  waiting to be fed.I took a few images from distance and left them in peace hoping that the young martins would survive and fledge.
 Common Sandpipers nest along the Marshaw Wyre and I was lucky enough to find a nest with three eggs in,I`ve posted an image of the nest and eggs and also a Common Sandpiper reflection image taken about six weeks ago at Newton Marsh.

A few more images from my starling project in the back garden.These are some of my favourite and probably my best images to date of the fighting starlings.

Back in April I started to feed the adult starlings with the idea that when the young fledged th e parents would bring them back to feed and the action would start.
The first fledged starlings arrived on the 4th May and I spent many hours watching their antics [god knows what the neighbours thought].I waited 24 days for the first blue sky to appear it had been a very long time but eventually the camera came out and the action started.I took lots of images and I`m very pleased with the results.I`ve posted a few of my favourite and better images below.
