Down From The North
This last week Kath and I have been entertaining her grandson Tim who has come down from Scotland to stay for a week in Blackpool. Timothy enjoys the great outdoors when we can get him away from his computer and we have all enjoyed a varied week of activities. The weather has been mixed and we got a soaking when we visited Ingleton and did the waterfalls walk. We survived however having enjoyed some spectacular scenery and at last the rivers and streams were running full again . Tim and I also enjoyed an afternoon on the beach at Southport photographing the waders many of which would have also come down from their breeding grounds in the far north.
I have posted one or two images from the week showing Tim and his granny at Thornton Force,the budding bird photographer on Southport beach and a few shots of roosting dunlin showing the beautiful feathers of the juvenile birds. An interesting week and I hope Timothy has many happy memories of his stay when he returns home next week.
