A lovely few days in the Lake District... it's a beautiful place to visit.
So much stunning scenery.
Cumbria does get it's fair share of rain (hence the lakes) so I was delighted to get the lovely sunshine I did and enjoyed some wonderful encounters on my wanders with some of the local birds.
|Robin (Erithacus rubecula)|
|Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs)|
|Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) ...with a hearty meal|
|Blackbird (Turdus merula).....|
|.....having a scratch around|
|Barnacle Geese (Branta leucopsis)|
|Carrion Crow (Corvus corone)|
|Red-breasted Merganser (Mergus serrator).....|
|.....so difficult to get a decent image of.....|
|.....as hard as I tried|
|Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba)|
|Enjoying the sunshine.....another tricky bird to get close to|
|Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)|
As stated in the last post I watched this lovely bird through my binoculars and had a superb view of it catching it's prey.
I grabbed my camera after the fish was caught and managed to get this record shot.
Fantastic weather...stunning scenery...and beautiful birds....what more could I have wished for.
