Attenborough May 2019
Pics from Attenborough on a lovely early summers day. Lots of camera-shy hobbies flying around!
Titchwell (April 2019)
Quite a grey, miserable day but some great birds! So many avocet pictures... Good views of a water rail but very frustrating trying to get decent pics.
Leighton Moss, November 2016
If you ever go to Leighton Moss, remember to take bird food.
We had a female pheasant come begging food, and after hand-feeding it the seed we found in the corners of our pockets it walked with the group for several minutes. All of the robins came and looked at us accusingly, and when I went to take pictures at the feeders one robin came and sat next to my elbow until I went to get it some food.
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.
