Around the Reserve

Sunday, October 5th 2014

Mallard, Moorhen and a single Little Grebe can be seen on the lake.

There are still flowers in bloom, some stand out in the sunshine, like this Black Knapweed.

Butterflies are on the wing and making the most of the late flowers.  This Red Admiral was enjoying not only the sunshine but the nectar from the Michaelmas Daisy in the back garden.  You can also see a bee feeding.
