A Collection of Photographs

Sunday, November 10th 2019

There is no story to the photographs for this blog, just photos of the reserve on a glorious autumn day.  Although not in quantity there are still flowers around.  This Red Poppy, appropriate on Remembrance Sunday, was growing on the wetland.

Red Clover grows across the reserve and is an important flower for some of the bumblebees.  It often looks more dead than alive but this one was spotted and looks just perfect!

It was cold, but with very little wind it was pleasant walking around and I was pleased to take my first frost photo.

Seeing blue sky and fluffy white clouds over the stone circle made a change from heavy black skies that have been the norm of late.

This morning there were only two Moorhen to be seen on the lake, but by this afternoon a group of male Mallard had flown in.

Colours on the lakeside are intense gold and bronze
