Yorkshire Insects

I recently spent a cultural day with my family in the village of Haworth, West Yorkshire,  home of the famous Bronte sisters. I did manage a few shots of the local wildlife as we also visited the picturesque village of Wycoller where there was an abundance of insects.

I photographed these Turnstones on the coastal defences at Wallasey over the high tide. It's nice to have such enigmatic waders close to home. Some of the birds were still in summer-plumage which is always nice to see.
