This Godwit preens, showing its namesake tail.By now a lot of the Godwits will have left the area to head North, probably to Iceland and eastern Europe where good numbers breed.I believe a few isolated pairs breed in Northern Scotland but numbers are low.
There is always plenty going on at the reserves this time of year and are a good place to visit and observe the waders.I hope you enjoy the images posted and look forward to posting my next blog shortly!!!

Unfortunately all is about to change on my local moors,for as I speak, 12 no, 100 metre high windmills are being erected to scar the beautiful landscape.How nature copes with these remains to be seen,I`ll keep you posted on the events....

So thats it finally on my adventure through the Caribbean islands,although primarily a familly holiday, I feel as if I didn`t do to bad on the nature side of things with the lens.Oh yes having a teenage daughter and wife, I did my fair share of trolling through the markets and boutiques and plenty of shopping thrown in to boot.It makes me wonder how I fit everything in but it was more than worth the effort.Roll on next year!!!!!
