The Young Ones
Think this was the title of a film starring Cliff Richard way back in the sixties ?? ... My young ones have been seen recently whilst out and about with the camera. It has been very quiet with most birds having now reared their young and everything has been lying low in the very warm weather we have been having during June.
I was very pleased to find an oystercatcher with chicks on a recent drive through Bowland. The birds were very close to the road and I was able to get some decent shots before the birds vanished into the grass and rushes. The young redstart was also seen in Bowland in the Tarnbrook area waiting to be fed by nearby parents. The grouse and curlew chicks were seen when I visited Teesdale recently as mentioned in my previous posting and I have shown the curlew image again as it is one of my favourites of the year. Hope my followers enjoy looking at the images and lets hope the youngsters survive to breed themselves in years to come. From the top the images show my favourite curlew shot followed by three images of the oystercatchers and the final two being red grouse and redstart chicks
