Attenborough Nature Reserve 01/09

There was not a lot of bird life on view today but in the water I did see young grebe being fed and close views of a little egret in particularly good light.

Its feet look as they have been dipped in yellow mud – but that is their normal colour.

Many of the human visitors were enjoying the blackberries as was quite a large flock of starlings but I was particularly taken by this female common darter perching on the fruit.
