Close relations.

Out and about last night enjoying the evening sunshine along the Shropshire Union Canal overlooking the Gowy Water Meadows. Plenty of activity both mammalian and avian and  I managed these photo's of two closely related pairs of species.

The Hare was really nice to see - they're quite scarce around my immediate area although commoner towards the Dee Estuary.

The Mistle Thrush was particularly scruffy looking and had obviously been reading Svensson as it was next seen checking for a cloacal protuberance!

A recent rip to Hilbre was rewarded with proof of breeding for both Robin and Dunnock - a fairly recent phenomonen after being lost as breeding species for awhile.
