Tree Sparrows and more at Sandbach Flash

 In the morning I was wondering were I could go to take some photos and somewhere I haven't been to that often, I thought Sandbach Flash. When we arrived this beautiful Tree Sparrow caught the edge of my eye and I was like WOW because I'd never seen one be for. I got some great photos but this one has got to be the best. I got about 5 metres away which was really was surprising.   

In this shot I thought that this is something my family could do. All the seed has been spread out and stuck on the fence with fats so all the birds can peck at it and have a tasty snack. On all of the posts where they meet up there it was, all the seed.

With this photo I was looking around thinking I was going to see nothing but I actually saw a beautiful Robin perched on a tree branch and said ''I'm going to get a photo''and guess what, I did. I took the photo and thought it was rubbish because I tripped on a piece of wood and hurt my foot, but it turned out to be amazing, even if I say so myself.  

This next bird called the coot is common and a bit dull, but is still nice to get a picture. What I think makes this picture good is the bird it self and of course the wonderful field the coots are standing on. Normally I just see them in the water.

Once we'd looked at the main pool we went over to a flooded field right behind it. My dad spotted a really nice bird, the Redshank. I really think this picture is good because 1. the colours and 2. the bird. The colours green,brown and blue make this bird really nicely hidden on the grass, apart from those shiny red legs.A big thanks to dad for spotting the bird so I can put it on my blog. 

Over on to the last part of the flash we have some Mallards, Teal, Wigeon and some others. People might not find Mallards interesting but every bird has their special part and that's why I put them on my blog.

I hope you enjoyed my very detailed blog.
