The sight and sound
of hundreds of geese
flying to and fro
across the Ribble estuary
is awesome

This gaggle hasn’t quite got
its formation act together

I admire professional wildlife photographers
Every feather, every whisker pin sharp
My efforts are snapshots
Merely snapping a shot
Hoping it will be recognisable
I’m happy with today’s subjects!

The one’s that didn’t materialise – a wheatear, a little brown mottled thing I couldn’t identify, linnets too far away and too fast to capture, and the scratchy tones of, possibly, a whitethroat skulking in the shrubbery that refused to show itself.  Another time maybe?

The other great find was this –  to add to my collection of beach treasures. It didn’t flinch an inch!

Not wildlife. Just wild!
