A nice bright plant was the Yellow Horned Poppy.
This post contains no bird pictures from the day, I will put these in my next post.
I think from the second hide we entered we heard a very close to Marsh Frog just to the rear and approaching steadily I managed shots of this beauty in a small nearby pool.

We have just returned from a week in Kent a new county for us and an enjoyable weeks stay.
At a well known destination in the county we saw Peregrine falcon flying, we were high above on the cliffs and dropped down to see if I could get any flight shots. We did not see them again flying level with the cliff tops but from afar I saw one bird eating on a ledge, I did not have my converter so the shots are 500mm focal length, much zoomed and cropped. The vertical shot is to give a bit of perspective to the height of the cliff behind.
We then saw three falcons on a shoreline rock and I managed to get one flying out over the shore line, it gives an impression of scale against the sea.

We had a brief walk around Seamer tip pools and I snatched these shots of a Meadow Pipit. I then tried to get shots of the House Martins flying over the water at great speed, and was only moderately successful, the pictures needed more speed , I had to zoom in and crop quite dramatically, I need to go back and sit there for a few hours some time.
