A Perfect Autumn Day

Monday, November 18th 2019

Flocks of Fieldfare and Redwing were observed through the middle of the reserve today; they were seen feeding on Hawthorn berries. They will almost certainly have arrived here from Scandinavia on their incredible long migration south for the winter. Some of them were caught and ringed along with a Blackbird, a Dunnock and a Wren.

The bright sunlight (a refreshing change) illuminated the autumn colours in the wooded areas.

Larch trees appeared golden against the perfect blue sky.

The crisp autumn day was an ideal one for exploring the covert. Students from the Dales School did just that as they enjoyed a stroll around the Easy Access Trail (Red Route) and enjoyed the sights, sounds and smells of their favourite Local Nature Reserve!
