BIRDING THE LUNE ESTUARY, THE FOREST OF BOWLAND AND BEYOND.

Doodling!

I found myself killing time so couldn't resist drawing your attention to this....

Anyone like to bet that  THESE TWO  get fined £5,000, or go to jail for 6 months when they get sentenced later this month....my bet is they won't get either.

And a couple of simply brilliant images....


Oystercatcher/Med Gull David Cookson 

This brilliant image shows a 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull in the act of trying to steal food - though it may not look that way - from the Oystercatcher, unsuccessfully according to DC. A photograph probably qualifying for the 'unique' category....Thanks David, brilliant.

And....

Marsh/Blue Tit Noushka Dufort

Surely another image for the 'unique' category with the Marsh Tit shouting at the Blue Tit 'give it to me or I come up there and sort you out'. Thanks Noushka, another brilliant photograph, will the brilliance ever end....no never! 

And finally....

Bewick's Swan. Copy Permitted.

One of the Bewick's Swans I found on Moss Lane last Wednesday, still there with the numbers of these and the Whooper Swans increased since then.

I'D SOONER BE BIRDING....tomorrow hopefully.

They'll probably even get their boats back Pete!

Nice post. I'd love to know how the action in Mr. Cookson's picture progressed. It seems most bizarre!

Hope you can get out birding soon.

They certainly won't get the sentence the offence can carry Richard, but I hope I'm wrong on that.

According to DC the gull failed to take the food, but the behaviour is amazing isn't it.

Been out today and your name is/pictures are mentioned in dispatches.
