New Year’s Day and a List

Thursday, January 1st 2015

There were many visitors walking around Foxglove, enjoying the rather blustery, damp day.  The characteristic scent of Fox had been noted along with another sighting of Roe Deer.

Glennis and Elizabeth visited the hide with a list - Otter, Roe Deer and Kingfisher - all to be photographed.  Oh and a Water Vole would not come amiss either!  Binoculars were used to count 15 Mallard and nine Moorhen.  Leaving the hide, a photograph of the Mallard, not on the list, was taken.

Then a second one and a flash of blue ...

... a shout and back over the bridge, binoculars out and sure enough, there was the Kingfisher sitting on one of his favourite perches near the far end of the lake.  A photograph at that distance was really pushing the camera to its limits, so it is a record only.

Back home with one species ticked off the list.
