Marton on a sunny day

Clock gone on and didn't forget this time, had to call in on Dave at Marton , so with the day looking like it was going to be nice, decided to spend a few hours in the hides with him because no one else was booked in.
Big mistake for every body who wasn't there because we had a good Brambling display with Goldfinches and the Wren for good measure.

Friday Afternoon

Been for a walk after work, to see if the tree creeper is still at it.
No sign of any more collecting, mind you to late to take any photo's, the light is against you at this time of day, had a wander around and took a few shots to keep busy.

Treecreeper bonanza

Day off, calls for a wander, not a lot going on, then out of the corner of the old plastic eye what do I spot, Treecreepers collecting nesting material..... To good to miss, light poor and grass very wet resulting in very wet knees, who cares !!!!!!

Turned out good again !!!!!    The rest are in the usual place on Google +

The weather was dire.

The forecast was not good for Sunday, so after a discussion with Tracey it was decided to forgo wildlife this week and go somewhere that we could take photo's inside if needed. Ellsmere Boat museum was chosen, so I picked up Trace and Steve and the suprise of the day my granddaughter Heidi and the four of us left a not very sunny or dry Staffordshire behind.
Shock of the day was no rain but sun in Ellsmere and a day spent outside in the cold but nice weather was the call of the day.  Won one at last

As you can see it turned out very well and was a day worth doing, if you ever go do not be tempted to go for a ride on the barge, £1.50 to be bored to death

Dave's again

Called in at Dave's to drop off a computer, not a bad day so stopped to take pic's for a couple of hours.
Not same luck as Sunday with the Wren even though it did keep appearing on a regular basis.

As usual the rest can be found by following the Google/Picasa link at the top.

Wren's, Wren's, Wren's everywhere you look Wren's.

Due to some young lady hogging all of the Wren photograph's last Sunday, I thought it might be a good idea to get some for myself.  Mind you I was a bit crafty, because she wasn't there today. I have to cheat some times.

Sunday 9th had a bright idea !

Picked Trace and Steve up at 7 set off for Leighton Moss---Mistake---left all of the sun behind and drove in to a dismal grey day.
Change of plan, ring the wife who says sun is shinning at home, so back down the M6, phone Dave at Marton , spend the afternoon in the hides.

Salvaged a disaster, 230 miles and ended up 4 miles outside Congleton, did manage to get a few decent images, even though the wren images I have been after, were taken by someone else, thanks Trace, I will persevere until I get the ones I want.

Still Wednesday

I was a realy busy boy and went a wander around the local patch after the trip to the sea side
