14 Sep 2013 No3 Bed

19th September 2013
Although there has been a bit of a lull in bird activity over the last few weeks and a distinct lack of water in No3 Bed, there are still plenty of things to see and photograph.


Small Tortoiseshell


Speckled Wood


Red Admiral

The birds do seem to be building up again with a few waders on show, plenty of waterfowl and still lots of butterflies and other insects around.


Black-tailed Godwit

The above is a pretty rubbish photo but I only had one chance at it as they zipped past the John Morgan Hide; c'est la vie and all of that.


Common Snipe

A bit distant a group of ten Common Snipe on the far bank of the centre pool opposite the John Morgan Hide.


Canada Geese

A small group of the hundred or so Canada Geese cruising on the water of No3 Bed.

The trees are laden with berries and acorns are plentiful.


Elderberry


Acorn


Himalayan Balsam



I'm not sure what the above plant is but it's quite colourful and deserved to be photographed.

So yes there has been a dip in the birds, it is Autumn and there is still not a lot of water in No3 Bed. However there is still plenty to see and to capture our attention if you only care to look.

Thanks for reading.

Andy
