Yesterday I went to Anderton Nature Park with my mum, and as we started the journey I spotted what I think is a Speckled Wood butterfly.
Sooner or later we set off to Neumanns Flash which was teeming with birds.
I especially liked watching the feeding party of Long Tailed Tits which I finally got a pitcute of. Every time I tried to find them through the lense, I lost them.
It was rather nice to see the Black Swan preening it's self, first one I've seen in a while.
Yes I know these are Cormorants but I never realised how white they are underneath.
But then these two didn't seem to have the white underneath, all a bit confusing. Mum said maybe it was the way the light was shining on them, but do you have any thoughts? As they flew away they formed a lovely V shape.
On the way back, I got watched by a cheeky squirrel .
And to finish off the day the House Martins were landing on a house roof. Maybe a little rest before the journey ahead of them.
I wanted to share this post and all the helpful comments with Wilde Bird Wednesday.
