A Success Story
It is a great place to visit with the camera as there is constant action with the common terns coming in to feed their young.The fish come from the nearby River Ribble and the terns fish the tidal river all the way down to the estuary at Lytham.They also travel inland to catch fish on the Lancaster canal.I have visited on a few occasions over the years but had not visited for some time.I therefore made a couple of evening visits this week and found plenty of action to photograph.
Some birds had fledged and flown but other terns still had very young chicks to feed and these families kept me busy with the camera.I have shown above a few images of the action and also a view from the Marina looking back to Preston and St Walburg's church where once again peregrine falcons have also been successful in rearing young. Soon the terns will depart on their long migrations to the African Continent and I wish them well until hopefully they all return again next summer.Thanks for looking in and enjoy the weekend.
