Lancashire Sun

I popped over the border to visit some reserves where I spent my youth and was bathed for two days in some lovely sunshine. This colourful Stonechat managed to catch some caterpillars, which I found quite surprising in -2C.
 
 
     
 
I left the Stonechat to his lunch and headed to Marshside RSPB where an Amercian vagrant was showing well. Here are some shots of the American Green Winged Teal.
 
 
 
 
 
I desperately wanted to get some wader shots, but despite walking several miles of shoreline things conspired against me. I did find this small flock of Twite feeding on the shoreline.
 

Soon enough the mist descended and the sun never came back.
