An Attenborough Amble

Being likely the only bright day of the week I was drawn to ANR again, where else?  It was very calm but the water level was very high. Water was flowing opposite to the normal flow from the Trent into the Erewash!

Apart from a group of seven goldeneye displaying there was not a lot on the water but the woodland  birds amply made up for that.


Several song thrushes were calling in the trees but this one one the ground in front of the Kingfisher Hide was the only one I saw.


I think this is my best shot of a wren. It was also rootling around in front of the Kingfisher Hide.


This punk blue-tit posed in front of the Tower Hide. It too was showing signs of the mating season approaching.


Finally – although it was the first good spot of my walk – this colourful great spotted woodpecker was a bit too shy to come out from behind his perch, but I thought it shows off the sunshine so well.
