I can`t get enough of the sanderling at Rossall,such beautiful little waders in their winter plummage.On a very cold sunny winters day I managed to find one running along the tide line giving great views and opportunities to photograph.I`ve posted a few of my favourite images from an enjoyable day out.

On the higher reaches of the Ribble are the salmon spawning grounds and to reach them the salmon have to overcome various obstacles mainly waterfalls.At one of these locations I tried to capture images of the salmon as they jumped the falls.I thought long and hard about posting these images as the fish aren`t sharp(human error on my part),but I will be back in the future to master the techniques and capture these remarkable fish and do them the justice they deserve.

While at Rossall Point photographing the waders a distant peregrine was chasing the wader flocks out over the sea,and a kestrel was hunting the dunes.I`ve posted a couple of images of the predators in hunting mode and will post one of the wader images very soon.
