Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Lapwing Lane

It had been a while since I'd got out for a meaningful birdwatch, but I went to one of my favourite local haunts last weekend and had a really good couple of hours. The sun was out and it was a nice mild day. I didn't find anything unusual but there were plenty of the usual woodland suspects on show. 

A Kestrel was hovering over the lakeside vegetation for a good 10 minutes, and made a couple of unsuccessful swoops, but it allowed me to stand and admire the beauty of this majestic bird. Never underestimated by me, it's a really special bird.


The bridal path was packed full of birds and the constant calling of Long-tailed Tits, Nuthatch and Treecreepers. A Great Spotted Woodpecker called, but soon took off once it saw me.

I enjoy reading your comments as much as I enjoy taking the pictures. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post.
