"There's not much about" - words that often greet you when arriving at a hide! Really? There is always something about, often common and expected species, but they are there and often provide excellent photographic opportunities as opposed to a distant rarity! Today was one of those days!
Opening the flaps in the carpark hide, we met some of the locals!
On the board walk, a Comma Butterfly posed but did not allow sight of its comma!
"Do you think he saw us? Grey Lag Geese.
A Little Egret did it's best to cover every part of the "Dams", giving excellent views at times!
Whilst at times, competing with a Grey Heron!
Who can resist a Grey Heron?
A Green Sandpiper was difficult to capture, always remaining distant!
It was nice to see Lapwings (c22)
I don't think this Magpie will hit it as a fashion mogul!
Stock Doves are always a pleasure to see!
And finally, a juvenile Dunnock
Overall, a lovely couple of hours at a delightful reserve!
