Potteric Carr

Had a full day out with the cameras yesterday, first stop was the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to pick up our passes, £25 for years membership is fantastic value. The lion enclosure is looking great and should hopefully be open sometime in May. We didn't stay around too long, it gets busy on hot sunny Saturdays but we did have to wander past the falconry area before we left.

Potteric Carr is only a stones throw away so we took the short walk round there, taking in 'that' hide. Not a huge variety of birds to be honest, probably due to the hot sunshine but we did get our first view of the Stoat that we've seen so many pictures of.

We had a great day in the sunshine, today it's looking a little damp and we're looking forward to doing nothing!
