|Comments:||Taking a slightly different route to usual I made my way to Preston and found places in Avenham Park that I have never visited before. Continuing on to the docks via the Guild Wheel I spent some time trying to photograph common terns using a nesting area provided by the Preston City Council, the Fylde Bird Club and the RSPB. The return route was then pretty much the same as the outward route.|
A section of Avenham Park . . .
holds a very apt memorial, today being the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme
A grand staircase
Much activitiy and noise requires a closer look . . .
and an information board tells me all
Not having a camera with me . . .
the photos aren't as clear as I would like . . .
so the phone will have to suffice . . .
to record the activities of the common tern
