The Birthday Gods were smiling on me today, I took the day off work to celebrate turning 30 (Or there abouts....) and the weather was bright and sunny!! I could hear RSPB Greylake calling, so not wishing to disappoint my friendly local reserve I paid it a morning visit!
Had a fabulous time, even remembered to wear a coat and hat!!
Highlight of the morning was yet another Peregrine dive bombing a Marsh Harrier, the second time I'd seen this happen at Greylake in a matter of weeks!!
Below are some of my photo's from the day, I would write more but I'm enjoying my Birthday Red Wine and my delicious Birthday Cake, made by my darling Nicola!
Been very spoilt today! :)
