It has been four months since I last published a blog. I have been out of action following further hip surgery. I am now bionic having had two new hips since July 2018!!
I am making a good recovery and am now able to drive again. This has meant that at long last I have been able to get out and about with the camera to record Lancashire’s wonderful wildlife.
I am not yet able to go far and so have made a few visits to the Longridge and Grimsargh areas which are just a few miles up the road. Shown below are some images from the area of a Great Crested Grebe, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff, local bluebell woods, broods of mallard and greylag geese and a passage of whimbrel.
Good numbers of whimbrel are now passing through on their way to northern breeding grounds.The whimbrel were coming into roost at Grimsargh Wetlands a new reserve being managed by the local Parish Council.
The final images show the sunset and moonset.
It was very nice to get back to business again and I am looking forward to more days out at this lovely time of the year.
