Martin Mere and Mitch

A week ago I visited the annual Bird Fair at Martin Mere. On the way I called to see some cats at a rescue centre at Tarleton.One of the cats "Mitch" is now living with me.Mitch is a lively young cat and will certainly keep me on my toes as he settles in.An image of Mitch is shown above

I always enjoy a visit to the Bird Fair meeting up with fellow birdwatchers and photographers and enjoying looking at the various stalls selling books,holidays,artwork and so on.There was just time later in the day to pay a quick visit to the Swan Link Hide to see the birds on show .Lots of whooper swans are now present and they are fed daily giving nice close views. I didn't have my usual big lens with me and the images above were taken with a small compact camera. I was pleased with the images of the ruff showing the lovely plumage highlighted by the setting sun.The sunset too was memorable and made a nice ending to a good day out.Thanks for looking in and I hope to get out and about again soon.


  1. Mitch looking good Brian and pleased you have found a new feline friend in him....Happy Days are here again!

  2. Nice to meet you Mitch,about time somebody did images at Martin Mere with a small lens as the view is spectacular. Well done Brian.
