Spring at last

Spring has sprung at last!

Sadly that means that the whooper swans at Martin Mere will soon be returning to Iceland.

Lichen found at Martin Mere and a 'phonescope'.

A friend has passed on the 'lichen' bug to me!!  I never knew they could be so interesting and unlike wild life they don't move when you try to photograph them.  Below is a selection of jam tarts!

We've now found a great device which fits on a mobile to take close up photos without the conventional camera.

Knott End

Spent a few days in knott End.  I went for a walk to the ferry early one evening and the sky was beautiful looking over towards Fleetwood.
