Dunlins and redshanks joined the other winter birds on the North Pool this morning. Luckily we finished our monthly bird count before the rain came down!🌧 ... See MoreSee Less
Remembering sunnier times on the reserve ☀️🐞
Does anyone know what species this little guy is!?
As far as I can tell it's a common blue damselfly with rather pale head markings? Correct me if I'm wrong though!!!
A gorgeous photo taken by @martinreed2624 THANKYOU for letting us post it ❤️👍

It was a cold and frosty January morning but things were hotting up on North Pool Island. The swans were kicking up a ruckus. Lots of chasing, wing flapping, trampling, clinches and biting.
BTW look out for the pochard, the duck with a dark chestnut head and black breast, we do not get too many of these here. . . . and the little lapwing which had to get out of the way of these colossal birds. ... See MoreSee Less
Look at this POSER!
Anyone who's been to the reserve will have seen the resident pair of Mute Swans, who are definitely bold enough to stand for a close up photo-shoot!
What stunning birds 😍😍😍

A Redshank 😍
These charismatic little waders aren't uncommon sights here in the winter out on the mud, but with their bright red legs I think they make great models!

By January the hedgerows are a bit thin on berries. However the Sea-buckthorn still has a few left and this blackbird is making the most of them. Such colourful berries and so well co-ordinated with his beak and eye liner!
Sea-buckthorn is a fascinating plant known for its healing properties dating back 12 centuries. Its scientific name is Hippophae which is derived from the Greek for shiny horse. Apparently the Greeks prized their horses and Sea-buckthorn oil must have kept them in tip top condition. ... See MoreSee Less
