  • Thank you Hazel
    The Rabbit was a bonus i had seen a baby owl and was just about to take a photo of it and it flew off, and then i saw the rabbit so all was not lost, it was a lovely sunny day and i quite enjoyed myself.

    Yes Tony i got tipped off by a chap about the Godwit and he told me where it was, although i had to be patient because it was looking away from me, but finally got the photo.
  • A lovely variety of stuff and great colours. Looks like a good place to go.

  • Thank you Nigel O it is an RSPB site, St Aidens. In West Yorkshire. I was there for around six hours, and it was a lovely day and it was great to be out and about and I was lucky to see so much wildlife.
  • You will have to look out for the Black-necked Grebes at St.Aidens as they show better than at Woolston Eyes reserve in Cheshire; they will have had their offspring now and some migrate  I believe (from what I read these birds don't like to fly  ! )  they can be found wintering in more southern areas of the UK but next March/April time they will be seen also in more northern areas of UK to breed. They are spectacular looking birds.

  • A cracking set of photos ILR, and that peacock butterfly is in fine colour, and a nice clear view of the small white's proboscis seeking out the nectar.
