Warnham LNR

First time back at Warnham LNR since easter break!! Felt good to be back, after a quick walk around only up to the second hide, in the feeders station there was little to see only a few Great Tits (Parus major), Pheasants (Phasianinae), Grey Squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) and goldfinch (Spinus tristis). In the second hide there was also little around 10 Grey Herons (Ardea cinerea), 2 kingfishers (Alcedo atthis), Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus), Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), Common Terns (Sterna hirundo), Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) (lots of young) and a few other common species. After a look in both locations on the reserve I headed back to the meadow and started to photograph the wildlife there, including Meadow Browns (Maniola jurtina) and Six-Spot Burnet moths (Zygaena filipendulae) over the next few weeks I hope to revisit the meadow in particular at Warnham LNR to improve my stock images of different insects.
