To bee or not to bee? That was the question on Thursday 12th June. With so many insects buzzing around enjoying the sun, it was difficult to ignore their sheer variety. Normally at Mere Sands Wood I would look for Kingfishers , but this time I never got further than the flower meadow next to the Visitors' Centre.
So easy to lose track of time when absorbed in photography, I had been snapping away at insects for two hours! Driving back to Penwortham I took a detour down Howick Cross Lane, a great place to come in the fading daylight. To my surprise, I found Tree Sparrows: my first ever sighting of this species in Penwortham.
