On Thursday (13th) We had a very pleasant walk down the main path at ANR to the Trent and back enjoying the sweet scent of the prolific May blossom, which means we could have “Cast a clout” * should we have felt so inclined.
A small group of the large number of Canada goose goslings hanging around the car park.
From the first screen I was delighted to get my first ever view of a great white egret on the reserve. This is a sequence taken from a wobbly (hand held) video clip showing it catching a fish. It was quite small but you can just about make it out on the penultimate image.
Egyptian goose deftly balancing on one leg.
Finally, one of my better action shots, of a mute swan in flight.
* From the old English proverb “Ne’er cast a clout till May be out”. ‘May’ can refer to the blossom or the month and ‘clout’ refers to an item of clothing – possibly your woolly vest. 🙂
