I’m in Shropshire this weekend enjoying the peace, quiet and beautiful nature.
We’re visiting Simon’s mum. Just like me, she has a love of nature and wildlife. Today we went along to Venus Pool to see what birdlife and butterflies might be visiting the lake.
These lovely birds are Lapwings. As a child I always called them by their other name, Peewit, which comes from the sound they make.
The flock were all on the far side of the lake but fortunately they took to the air, briefly, and I was able to get a few photos of them.
I’ve never had a chance to photograph them before, so very much wanted to share a childhood dream brought to life with you.
