Black Tailed Godwit

Well its been a while....

Sunday was the first time i've been out with the camera in ages, Saturday was a really nice day so I decided that's it Sunday i'm out. Should have gone out on the Saturday because Sunday turned out to be really dull, overcast and at times wet, but I was out so happy days.

First we ventured to Mere Sands Wood which was pretty quiet, not a great deal going on or to see, birds we did see where Treecreeper, Long tailed tit, female Bullfinch and lots of Canada Geese.

From there we went on to Marshside in Southport which turned out to better with this Black Tailed Godwit coming close by the hide.

Here are the pics I got..






All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm @ 500mm

Let's hope it won't be as long next time between posts :)

Cheers, Mike.

  3. Hey Mike… nice to see pics from you again :-)

    For some reason (maybe because I don’t see many) I am drawn to the beaks and expressions of wader birds. I love the way they tilt their heads. Seeing your pics tonight (nice job) I am also drawn to giving each one a caption – but I am also a tad tired so I’ll pick just one pic ;-)

    Fav pic, first one… caption… “okay I can hear you in there… I’m being patient… but I’m also a bit hungry… so get a wriggle on ;-)
