Gooseander family 2011

Ten days earlier than last year, that gooseander hatched out a brood of 11 on our farmhouse roof. They jumped 3oft off the roof onto the field, then set off with their mother for Sabden Brook. You can just about see them in these photos...

Orange tip butterfly

An orange tip butterfly arrived in our garden this week. According to our book, they aren't usually seen in Lancashire - especially hillside country. Any further information welcome!
