Attenborough Nature Reserve

Attenborough Nature Reserve

Dropped in here for a couple of hours on my way home after a short stay in Derbyshire. I’d never been before but it was disappointing as it appeared to be a typical Country Park with wide hard surface or Tarmac tracks and with a lot of the water surface obscured from view by massively overgrown hedges and trees. Mainly deep water so very little Wader margins, some work was being done to provide wet grassland habitat but this still had a long way to go. Huge numbers of Canada Geese, Greylags, Cormorants and Black-headed Gulls with a good number of Wigeon and Gadwall. Only real thing of interest was a Cetti’s calling from scrub on the “Wheatear Field”

Just managed to get a few shots of Herons with the Olympus EM5 and 75-300mm lens, otherwise not much to show:
