During my visit to Cleveleys, I was also successful in producing a series of wildlife images.
With this, I experimented with a variety of different compositions and subjects, whether was to isolate individual subject, small groups or sizeable formations, there was a great deal of potential for photographing different types of sea birds.
Initially, I noted a few different examples, several were general variations of sea gulls, many of which offered more opportunities for isolated subjects. One of which I liked in particular was the interaction shot where three different gulls were fighting over one fish.
I believe there were also another grouping of a type of sea bird I’d seen in my recent shoot at St Annes that were also attempting to feed.
There was also a grouping of sand pipers upon nearby rocks and walking along the shore.
However, there also significant sightings of bird carcasses washed up along the beaches, many were in parts (primarily wings). One of which was very distinct, following a similar description to that of the birds I noted during my visit to Morecambe, with a large, definitive orange beak. This was an upsetting sight to see, especially alongside young children playing on the beach.
Overall, I believe that this was a successful shoot for producing a variety of wildlife images.
