A sunny walk and one not quite so sunny!.... 4th & 5th June 2013

A local walk was enjoyable on a gloriously sunny and relatively warm morning made all the better with sightings of  Skylarks galore, Yellowhammer,  Buzzard, Little Owl and a flyover Red Kite! Peacock and White butterflies flitted around in the adjacent fields though not settling very often and a Pheasant called several times but was well hidden!
Spot the Little Owl!

A very busy and tired looking Blue Tit!

The gorse looked lovely in the sunshine. Such a vibrant colour!

The not so sunny walk was taken in the Wyre Forest in the area of the Visitor Centre. Great, Blue and Marsh Tit,  Blackbird, Chaffinch and a Pied Wagtail were the highlight birds.

  1. It's been nice to have a few sunny days hasn't it Pam!
    I found the Little Owl.....watching you watching it! lol
    Love the Dunnock family too!

  2. It has been good to see some sunshine Ruth, long overdue too!

    Thanks for your comments, glad you liked my Dunnock family!

  3. Sound like a good walk...flyover Red Kites are always a bonus in these parts Pam!

    1. The Red Kite was a treat to see Jason and as you say a 'bonus' in these parts!
