Sand Martins

It’s a wonderful sight to see the specially constructed bank close to the Visitors Centre at the RSPB reserve at Saltholme, as the Sand Martins return to us. It’s a perfect example of an environment artificially created to encourage wildlife.

They are trying out nesting sites in the holes engineered into the concrete for them.

And flying through the skies again.

On the lake overlooking the visitors Centre was a Lesser Black Backed Gull.

And in the trees was a Blackbird.
