On Wednesday I visited the coast at Southport to watch and photograph the high tide wader roost.I think this is one of the most exciting spectacles to witness and photograph on the Lancashire coastline and I never cease to be amazed by the sheer numbers of birds present.I have tried to show above some of the birds present which consisted mostly of knot,bar tailed godwits,grey plover and oystercatcher. There would also have been dunlin and sanderling present in the huge numbers of birds at the roost.If you look carefully at a couple of the images above you will see a photographer, not me , who was under camouflage and was surrounded by many thousands of birds.He must have got some terrific images of the waders coming and going from the roost.I think I will have to try this approach on a subsequent visit. Thanks for looking in and hope you enjoy my efforts above to try and convey one of nature's finest spectacles.
