    Photos 2 Bugs & a series of birds:

    Here are a few from a quick visit to Brockholes Nature Reserve at Preston on Wednesday - not as good as some birding togs might get, but I was quite pleased to even photograph the whitethroat up here round Preston. And, I know it's reasonably small in the frame, but I like it that way as it gives a good indication of it's size in the branches of a (I think) a hazel tree. Plus a scorpion fly and butterfly - haven't ID'd that one yet...

    Thanks Ian.

    I only had the one lens with me when I went - the Sigma 150-500. Had I taken all my kit, or at least the 100mm, I would have had a field day - I saw dozens of damsels and shed loads of other flying insects...


    Paul.

    Thanks to Bilbo_baggin

    Coots! My favourite ducks. So sweet to see one building its home.

    The finch shot has something special about it.

    Thanks to Cosmicpore

    Thanks for looking m8 - I too think the goldfinch is fair good.
