Muddy puddles

Most years I set up a pool to attract birds so I can get shots of them drinking and bathing, this year I have had 2 on the go, the long dry spring has meant that the pools were much more successful than usual with one pulling in Yellow and Pied Wagtails, Corn Buntings Linnets, Grenfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch and several species of Warbler, especially a pair of Whitethroats who came to bathe at about 8:40 a.m. each day.
The other pool was shallow and deliberately muddy and offered much needed building material for the Swallows and House Martins around the farm.
There are many more shots on my Flickr pages http://www.flickr.com/photos/nigelblake/
