I have managed a couple of trips into Bowland this week to catch up with the wildlife.The weather has been very mixed again and is currently pouring down as I write this account.It did stay dry and much warmer than on some of my previous visits.I enjoyed a very interesting session in a remote part of Bowland with Simon and Paul. We had a very enjoyable afternoon photographing whinchats as they looked for food and perched up obligingly on nearby thistles.We were hidden by camouflage and were able to obtain some nice portraits as the birds came close to the camera.I have shown some of the results below and an image of Paul and Simon at the location in the wilds of Bowland. On another trip this week I had excellent views of a golden ringed dragonfly and another encounter with a couple of adders. Images of these are also shown below. Hope you enjoy the images and thanks for looking in.
