Onto Cresswell as we here the great white egret is hanging around,not here I am afraid was the cry,try looking at Druridge pools,getting to the pools was the problem,water water every were it get in your boots it gets in your hair, that's if you have any.(check my photo)alas it gives us the slip again.hauxley is our next stop you never know your luck.It's been a while since we had any crack with brain in the main hide so the visit is worth it. Now the hide is open until 5 o'clock you get a better chance to see things.Plenty here but no great white egret,one chap came into the hide and gave use good news,he was looking at the great white down at
warkworth lane pond.it was at a distance from the lane but worth a look.Off we went to see if our luck will hold out,and guess what it bloody well did,it was at a distance but what a bird,we viewed it for about while then off it took,what a sight seeing this bird in flight,I just managed to take a shot of it as it flew overhead,not a sharp shot but who cares.seeing the great white was our goal.
All wild flowers were taken over the past year,most of them in the Northumberland area.
A small collection of photos of our local birds
Most of these birds were photographed in the north east area.
the glossy ibis
my fist sighting of the glossy ibis was a good one, there it was right in front of the window,there was at least 15 people taking shots of it,must be the most photographed bird in the north east
and rightly so.
birds of pray
most of these birds were photographed in captivity,the ones with out names are not identified as yet.
