Marsh Tit - look at that shiny head, a good one to compare with the Willow Tit in the previous post
Look at that shiny head, a good one to compare with the very similar Willow Tit in the previous post. Definitely a smart looking bird.
Redshank
Nothing rare or unusual about this one however after spending many years living next to the Wyre estuary the call of the Redshank brings back a lot of happy memories.
Snipe
Snipe in the evening sunshine – again something else we don’t get a lot of. Unlike the sunshine in the right habitat the Snipe are relatively common – even in Manchester.

A male Brambling amongst the other finches at Martin Mere. Perhaps its time to try some sunflower hearts at home.
