Bits and bobs....

....as they say.

The Goldeneye count on the Lune at Glasson Dock continues to rise with at least 150 counted today and cannot possibly include the ones 'under' when I went through them for a second time. A Peregrine Falcon perched on Colloway Marsh spelled 'death' to any one of a few thousand birds here again today and not one of them knew it.

In the field opposite Sand Villa, 5 Bewick's Swans and 6 Whooper Swans 3 of which were juveniles. The swan picture here appears to change on a daily basis.

At Bradshaw Lane Head a Short-eared Owl was hunting again and you cannot help but wonder, just how much is this bird struggling to survive after all this time preying on the small mammals of this area.

Well at least it's a pic of birds this time!
