Fences and Flyers.



A few more images from my recent visit to Farlington Marshes incorporating the fences and some of the flying species that occupy this landscape. Linking to Good Fences hosted by TexWisGirl.

Miles of barbed wire fencing erected to segregate the different habitats around this reserve also helps to contain cattle used to manage the grazing areas and to deter us two legged beings from trespassing. 

Meadow Pipit hanging on tightly.

My view over the reed bed where most of the in-flight shots were taken. FAB.

  5. Farlington Marshes are great birding spot. Love the flight of geese and lovely light shots of the Meadow Pipit on fence.

  6. Fences and flyers are great shots, but the capture of the Meadow Pipet is my favourite. It makes one wonder how birds manage to alight on the barbs which look seriously spikey.

  14. I bet at least the birds enjoy having the fences to land on. Although they must be very good and landing to avoid the barbed wire! Nice photos. Thanks for the visit Frank...Janey

  17. Some good navigation skills and landing gear those birds got! :)
    The fence and the general area surrounded by the fence are beautiful.
    When I first looked at the Dark Bellied Geese, I couldn't tell which side the beak was :)
    Nice one!
    Have a Beautiful Day!!
    Peace :)
