Starlings are one of our most commonest Garden birds resident in the town all the year through. In the Autumn they are joined by huge numbers who spend the winter here. This is my Birds eye view of the Starlings at Walmersley in Bury Photographed over looking Burrs Country Park in the distance.

Originally the home of the Manchester Docks this area has changed dramatically through Urban Regeneration since its closure in 1982. The area is now home to the Imperial War Museum, The Lowry Art Gallery and the new MediaCity all easily accessed by Manchester’s Metrolink.

This is an early evening photograph capturing the BBC Buildings and the Lowry all enhanced by the beautiful colours of the Neon.

Autumn flowering Heathers line this old footpath that has been created out of recycled Burnley Bricks. The pathway is one of many in the Walmersley area .  This is a favorite view of Bury that I like to keep re-visiting taking photographs to see the seasons come and go.

The Old Barn at Birtle

Birtle-barn-062

Some have described this Birtle barn (also can appear as Bircle on old maps)  as was the “Old Hanging Barn” the place where local criminals were hung on a Silver birch. I do not know how true this was  but all is quiet now. This barn is one of many nice old cottages in the village of Birtle which nestles between Bury and Heywood in Lancashire and is one of my favourite places to photograph.

Beyond Golden Fields

The last of the days sun licks across the landscape turning the grasses to gold, even the puddles don’t escape.  The fleeting weak sun reaches inside the puddles to reflect the sky and then it is all gone.  The oncoming darkness pulls in the cold air and the shadows… I am done for the day.
