The Weather Improves.

With an improvement in the weather hopefully we will see an improvement in the accessibility to our wildlife, as its been a struggle to get out of the house with all the damp dark days we have had. A trip around the local area last week gave us a cracking Scaup at Cowpen Bewley, some good views of Little Owl and a long awaited Crossbill, these have been very scarce in our area over the past couple of years so its good to see them again.

Holiday time and poor weather.

We didn't let the weather stop us from getting out and about over the last two days.
Nosterfield yesterday and Sutton Bank today.

So long ago.

Can't believe it is so long since our last post.
Been a funny old winter, high winds not making it very good getting out and about.  Did manage a trip to Scaling Dam last Sunday and came across these two amazing birds on the moors.  Managed to get these amazing shots from inside the car.  They really were not bothered we were there.
