Gather 'Round Kids

 

Martin Mere Wetland Centre

 

Knowing how I love birds and wildlife, Frank had been wanting to take me to this wonderful refuge, part of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust.  So, one particularly icy day, we set off for our visit.  The place exceded any expectations.  While we didn't see any raptors or kingfishers...  we did see many beautiful species of birds - and the cafe is top shelf.  I can't recommend it highly enough - and I hope to return, on a warmer day!

A visiting swan from Europe
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wherever he's from - he seemed intent on holding court!
It's showing off Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He definitely wanted the attention!
Ha, ha..Good one Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! X
I love seeing the wigeon. It is the European race so different from ours.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I'm glad you recognized him - are they real different from yours?
The ducks don't seem at all put off by this big swan do they.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nah - they probably know him well.

Great title! Not sure any of those ducks are taking the blindest bit of notice though!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Anne! They don't seem interested at all, do they?!
Look at me ducks.....and weep!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's right!!
