Pennington Flash

These pictures are from a few weeks back when I took a visit to Pennington Flash, which is one of the premier birding sites in the North West. Such a varied array of habitats, it attracts so many different species.
It was a bright morning (always a bonus) and there was lots to see. There were Reed and Sedge Warblers in the reed beds. A Kingfisher zipped past while I was watching some of the many Grey Herons, and the main water held hundreds of Swifts, Swallows and Sand Martins. It was a fantastic Spring morning.

A male Blackcap was letting everyone know he was around.

Common Terns taking a rest in front of Horrock's hide.

Great crested Grebe.

A juvenile Grey Heron, and some Lapwings behind.

Little ringed plover.

Stock Dove

Something I try every year. Catching a Swift in flight. It's not very easy.


  1. Hello, what a great collection of birds. I like the cute Blackcap. Great photos of the Terns, Little Ringed Plover and the Dove. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

  6. Any capture of a swift in flight is a success in my book!

  7. The ring plovers are lovely. We have doves in our backyard though I don't know their names. They have pink on their collars.


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