Little Ringed Plover

After two weeks in the Arctic Ice it is difficult to return to the local scene against the backdrop of thundering traffic on the M62.

A visit to Pennington Flash produced five Green Sandpipers, good to see but always too far away to film. A family party of Bullfinches and a Willow Tit were also enjoyed at the feeding station in the presence of a rat!

In the hills two Green Sandpipers were feeding around the edge of a moorland reservoir, plus a Little Ringed Plover with two young that were only about fifteen days old.

In the garden a young Tawny Owl was calling for food in the early hours of the morning and was being regularly fed by the adult.
