Lothian Weekend February 2013

I recently joined a group of members from the Wilmslow Guild Birdwatching Group on the weekend trip to the Lothian coast. The official trip report can be read here.
On this page I have showcased a few more of my photos from the trip.

On the way north to Haddington we first stopped at the WWT reserve at Washington, Tyne & Wear.
