Redwing in our Garden

A few weeks back I posted a couple of record shots of a Redwing in our garden. If you looked at the images on a decent monitor you could see that it was a Redwing behind all the branches and rose thorns.

I have now got 2022 off to a better start with some much clearer shots of Redwing in our Garden.

We also have quite a few male Blackbirds that seem to enjoy chasing the Redwing off.

If you click on an image you should see it at a better quality and be able to step through the others.

Ben Rhydding Gravel Pits 24 July 2020

I have made yet another visit to Ben Rhydding Gravel Pits, partly because I like driving my new car, partly because I have been able to top the battery up free of charge, but mainly because it was a sunny day and I still want to get a good photo of a flying Brown Hawker – yet to be achieved, but I include a shot here.

The photos above are of things seen within the nature reserve. Again, on this visit, there were lots of what looked like Large White butterflies flitting around but they seldom stayed still.

With the water treatment works across the road on one side and the river with fields on the other there were Cormorant, Oystercatcher and Lapwing easily visible from the more open areas of the reserve.
