Birdlife – Blackpool

Standard

Quite a severe frost last night for round here. Glad my fuchsias were well wrapped up and protected from the elements.

Went looking to see if the Desert Wheatear was still around. No signs. Hope it’s survived and moved on to warmer climes.

A pied wagtail foraged in the dunes.

Stonechats flitted about in the Lytham St Annes Nature Reserve.

Oystercatchers mingled on the seashore.

In the distance the Lake District, its peaks capped in a dusting of snow, looked stunning.

The peregrine sunned himself on his regular perch.

What’s not to like about bright wintry days?
