All the wonderful birds and wildlife of Lancashire, Cheshire, North Wales and further

A day of mixed fortunes as I was lucky enough to connect with the long staying bustard after working away in South Wales all week, but dipped the Pacific swift over at Hornsea Mere.
The Little Bustard was feeding in the second field back from the footpath, great that is was not being disturbed but a little distant especially for photos. Through the scope we had good views.
Despite not seeing the elusive fast flying swift I was made up to get the bustard on my list having missed the new years day bird and more recently the Slimbridge bird.
