Pics from Attenborough on a lovely early summers day.  Lots of camera-shy hobbies flying around!

A walk (and boat trip) around Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire.  One of the oldest nature reserves (1899!) and the fifth property bought by the National Trust.

Walking seven miles of moors and woodland around the Longshaw estate. And then the world's biggest chip butties in Grindleford!

New things tried here: combining images for HDR; built a sort routine in to the gallery software so uploads getting out of sync don't matter.

Attenborough, June 2007

Spent Father's Day taking Dad around Attenborough. Lots of young birds - Reed Warblers and Whitethroats, Tree Sparrows, Great Tits, Coot, Moorhen, Mute Swan and Mallard all got photographed.

There were also a large number of Banded Demoiselle dragonfly-type creatures around; enough that we saw a sparrow catch (and drop) one, one got caught and eaten by a spider, and we found just the wings of another on the path. Mating Ladybirds and a bunch of Peacock Butterfly caterpillars, and some strange cricket-type critters, were amongst the other insects we saw, not counting all the flies and midges.

Just a walk on a sunny day, and everywhere around were young birds...

Mostly just pictures of Great Crested Grebe as one was very accommodating, fishing just under the bridge near the car park. With it being so close and spending so long fishing, I hoped I'd get at least one decent shot!

Cley Marshes, September 2006

Cley Marshes as it used to be - by the time you read this, parts of it are probably under water as the sea defences have been changed.

Not an ideal day photography-wise, but some nice views of a kingfisher and swallows getting ready to head south.
