Moorhen at Martin Mere

By Peagreen
This was taken at Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre near Southport. Went with one of my Daughters who is a Childminder plus two other Childminders and 24 young children aged between 15months and 12years. We all had a lovely day but unfortunately I didn't have 'time' to do much photography. This Moorhen is one of the few shots I managed,Smile As usual cropped and framed on picnik!! Hope you like itGrin

Thank you all for your c&c's on 'Small Tortoiseshell' and for you time. Much appreciatedSmile
Take care.............Pauline
