My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

A few weeks ago I took a long weekend break to the Farne Islands (more about what I saw there in future posts). I planned my route up so that I could make several stops along the way to see various birds and to break the journey up. So rather than following the quickest route I took the scenic route. This involved driving up through the Lake District to Carlisle, and then East through Northumberland, almost following Hadrian's Wall.
One area that I stopped at looked very good for Stonechat, and I was quickly rewarded with a family of them.
The male keeping a close eye on me.
One of the juveniles, looking very healthy.
I do like these birds a lot. Really enjoy watching them.
