A Lovely day today, and what better than to be out in the country looking for wildlife.

Yes another Mandarin 

And a Canada Goose keeping his wits about him

And by the look of things he has seen it all before.

A female chaffinch looks to have found something nice to eat.

And by the looks of it has made a meal out of it.

And whatever it was she has eaten she is now walking it off.

Now we can't have a walk in the country without a wild flower

now can we.

No its not easter, but a lovely yorkshire Rabbit

Well you can't have one without another can you.

Is it a plane or is it Superman, no it's a Red Kite.

And another

What another ? Yes another.

OK Thats your lot for today. 

  • Lovely photos and sightings ILR, how thrilling to see the Red Kite and the handsome Mandarin drake; female chaffinches are always a delight to see and such attractive finches with their delicate features, Nice way to start the day, thanks.

  • Lovely set ILR, and 3 kites! That's plain greedy!! Thanks for sharing
  • Oh them Red Kites are just beautiful...thanks for sharing your day out ILR ;-)

    (Pardon the Scottish Accent)

  • You can never have too many Red Kites in my opinion. I've been watching them locally since the release scheme and I still never tire of them

    Lol PB I probably saw more than three, although too far to photograph, but I did cheat a little as I always see them at this venue it is perfect for owls as well although I have never seen one there but not been there early morning or at dusk. Now there's a thought ? Thanks PB
