Lapwing, they maybe a relatively common bird, but I realise that I've underestimated just how colourfully varied their plumage is, what a nice surprise.

Three Little Egret on the Common, followed by a close up of two of the three birds (in case there's any doubt that 3 white carrier bags were masquerading as Little Egret).Reed Bunting in its natural habitat
Sunday, first visit to Cowpen Bewley Woodland Park. Lazily, from the car we spotted the usual suspects Finches, Tits, Robin, Blackbirds plus a Yellowhammer and a Reed Bunting. Later on, at Seaton Common 3 Little Egrets. Saltholme Pools, Tufted Duck, Canada Geese, Pink Footed Geese. To cap it off, on the way back to Leeds, on the Ring Road we were welcomed home by a Roe Deer.
