|“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”|
|Highlights from a few hours spent dodging the showers around Morecambe Bay.
Great to see plenty of Curlews in the freshly sown fields adjacent to Cockerham Marsh.
|Also plenty of Lapwings and Golden Plovers with a female Merlin taking more than a passing interest. Strange how the Lapwing’s iridescent plumage appears even more impressive in the clean, coastal light.|
|Turnstones at nearby Knott End.
A flock of 18 Twite were briefly seen but disappeared over the cafe roof as their normal feeding area was submerged by the rising tide.
|Dig for victory !
Perhaps this excavator has seen one too many battles.
|Mmmm………raw, muddy potatoes.
Approximately 42 Whooper Swans enjoying the remains of the potato harvest at Eagland Hill. A high energy snack and just right for recovering after the long flight south from Iceland.
