A feathery mix from west Lancashire from our now Welsh Extreme Photographer

The Safari only managed a few dreary minutes not long after dawn and fewer very damp minutes at lunchtime.
Easily best sighting of the day was an adult Gannet cruising round over the heads of about 20 Cormorants and  five Red Throated Divers were seen.
At lunchtime the visibility was dreadful and we didn't stay long, not even to look for the now assumed AWOL Black Redstart.
Totally lacking pics today we are very grateful for our Extreme Photographer lets us show  you what he's been up to on his few days back in Lancashire with his new camera/lens combo
Great Grey Shrike - Lytham Moss
Robin - Marton Mere nature reserve
(Eastern) Grey Squirrel - Marton Mere nature reserve
Great Spotted Woodpecker - Marton Mere nature reserve
His pics should be good once he's got the hang of the controls!
Where to next? The weekend starts here and there will deffo be some wildlife involved.
In the meantime let us know who brightened the dreariness in your outback.

Glad to see 'The Extreme' nailed the shrike, the GS Woodpecker shots ain't too shabby either, mindst he can nearly reach out & touch them with that new lens [insert massively envious smiley here].
