Around The Lanes

The weather recently has been for the most part very dull and depressing.Consequently I haven't been out much with the camera.One or two afternoons were slightly brighter and better and I took the car for a ride around the lanes in the Pilling and Cockerham areas.Spring was in the air and ir was nice to see the snowdrops in bloom.Brown hares were becoming active and there were still decent numbers of wildfowl and waders in the area.

A selection of images are shown below of the wildlife.All of the images were taken from the comfort of the car which is always very useful as a mobile hide.The kestrel on the lookout for prey takes pride of place.Lapwings and curlews on the flooded fields were numerous throughout the area.It was nice to get a couple of close ups of Whooper and Bewick's swans showing the difference in size and bill pattern.Wild geese were also found in various locations,mainly pinkfeet but I did manage a couple of shots off white fronted and barnacle geese at Pilling.The geese are also shown in flight as they moved around the area.The final image shows a nice sunset over Pilling church.Keep tuned for more from my travels and hopefully the weather will brighten up and warm up in the days to come.
