The Thursday just gone was an inset day (due to the teachers being on strike), so I decided I'd prefer an insect day! I had to go to my grandma's and boy did I have some success!!! My grandma and grandpa had taken me to a local reservoir; I was hoping I would see the Common Sandpiper and I did. I managed to get a few good snaps before it went to join it's parent on the shingle shore.
I think I will enter one of the photos into the Country File photographic competition.
I am slowly getting to learn to be patient with photography...
It wasn't just birds that I got a few shots of; a brown hare posed beautifully
Hares are quick and fascinating wonders to nature (possibly my new favorite type of animal apart from birds).
The last time I visited Brenig there were quite a few pairs of Greylag Geese about, and so when I went this time I found that they had bred; I watched at least 50 of them.
And of course I couldn't forget the bird that caused all the commotion on Twitter the Black/Common Redstart. The final conclusion was a Common Redstart.
And the insects, well I think my brother Harley will be blogging about them some time soon.
