On the home front I did well with kingfishers this year.They seem to have done well following population crashes in previous years.Well known locations at Martin Mere and Yarrow Valley provided some nice images. Leighton Moss also came up trumps with three Great White Egrets present for many weeks.I also managed for the first time to photograph the bearded tits coming to the grit trays in the Autumn.The red deer rut was also excellent and some fine stags were on view and posing for the camera.
I enjoyed very much my early morning visits to Bowland in the Summer when I was able to photograph the brown hares and was also lucky to see one or two tawny owls. My first selection of images show Red Deer Stag,Great White and Little Egrets,Bearded Tit and Buzzard from Leighton Moss.Great Crested Grebe from Mere Sands Wood .Waders from Hoylake on The Wirral and kingfishers from Yarrow Valley Country Park.I will post another selection of my favourites from 2014 before the end of the year.Thanks for looking in and enjoy the forthcoming festivities.
