Hodborrow

Next on my trip payed a visit to Hodborrow nature reserve near Millom on the west cumbria coast looks very beautiful in the sun. Around the coast were a few intresting architecture pieces with 2 lighthouse one on  the Outer Barrier section and the reamins of a old windmill

Wildlife around plenty of birds with the highlight being a few pair of Red-Breasted Merganser, a big flock of Eider ducks Willow Warblers and Whitethroats singing everywhere including one Lesser White throat. Butterflies there series species with all 3 of the whites and Orange-tipped and my first Small Copper of the year.
