More of the same

It has been another week of very unseasonable weather with rain on most days. I managed to get out again early morning before the next period of rain arrived. As usual it was a good decision and another fruitful one with the camera.The usual early morning birds and mammals were up and about and I got some nice shots from the comfort of the car as I traveled the quiet backroads of Bowland. The birds seem to like sitting up on fence posts and walls to greet the sunrise and provide some nice opportunities for the camera. Shown below are oystercatcher,common snipe and curlew all posing nicely.The other bird posing for me was a barn owl which I discovered surveying it's territory from the safety of it's field barn.It had probably hunted very early and returned to roost. I hope to catch up with the owl at a later date when I can watch it hunting the meadows and hopefully obtain some nice images.Also below are yet more brown hare shots. This one was very close to the car and allowed me to grab some close ups .Hope you enjoy my efforts and thanks for looking in.


  1. All six can only be described as excellent images Brian, including the 'eye full' of the Brown Hare, I love photographs with a difference.

  4. I love the hare photographs Brian; wonderful detail in both of the photographs. Absolutely brilliant OysterCatcher image - the ambling along the fence with a lovely orange background is a real winner. Great post.
