Wicken Fen, June 2019
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.
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.
Random bits of nature photography from various places (Chichester and London certainly, some of it inside the office and my house!)
