Between my talks to Stockport and Macclesfield RSPB groups a few weeks back, I visiting Pennington Flash to see what I could photograph.
I recalled my last visit to this site, which was to see a first record for Britain of a Black-faced Bunting and was horrified to discover 22 years had elapsed, where did that time go!
The site is renowned for it’s population of Willow Tits, which are tricky to find anywhere in the UK these days. From one hide these showed very well, in fact so well they were all too close to focus on. It doesn’t always pay to have a big lens!
I did however have some fun with the resident colony of Grey Herons, who where flying back and forth and occasionally dropping in to collect nesting material.
Below are a selection of the images I got.
