Long Time No See

It has been a long time since I had last seen kingfishers.They had been badly hit by previous severe winter weather and have been slow to recover. So it was nice to hear of the whereabouts of kingfishers not far from home. I have made a couple of visits this week to an area used by the kingfishers and have had nice views of the birds.It was not easy to obtain images as the stream is in a deep valley surrounded by trees and the light was not good for really sharp images.I did however manage a few reasonable images and these head this post. I have also this week made early morning and evening visits to the Bowland area.Distant views of roe deer but nice close ups of snipe and brown hare which are shown below. I have also shown a couple of the area of Bowland where I have been and where I have enjoyed my morning and evening visits.Hope you enjoy my images from the week and thanks for looking in.As I write this it is pouring down again and it looks set to continue with this very unseasonable weather for some time to come.

  4. Lovely and eclectic series!
    Your Kingfisher reminds me that we also have lost many birds in the south of France and the Kingfisher that used to come around our lake has been found dead in the nursery below our place... Really sad.
    I wish another could come and take over!
    Your hare ans snipe are fantastic too.... a great proximity!
    Cheers Brian!
