My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you
Thursday 13 March 2014
It won't be long now.
We're rapidly heading towards my favourite time of the year. Spring brings so much joy to me in terms of the birds that will soon be turning up just a few miles from home. Together with the British species that will be setting up territories and nest sites, many will be coming in from other countries to holiday and rear young here. There will be warblers, Cuckoos, Swallows and Swifts to name but a few. My favourite visitor though is the Redstart, and to help increase my excitement level I thought I'd share a few pictures I took a couple of years ago in the Goyt Valley. Such a remarkable bird.
Here is the male in all his glory.
And the female's pretty hot too.
There's the red orange tail that quivers quite regularly.
