A Morning at ANR

I would describe the weather on my morning walk around Attenborough Nature Reserve as breezy but bright. I saw no new birds but more than the usual number of little egrets.

Little egret showing its extraordinary yellow foot and a lesser black backed gull, also with yellow footwear, which distinguishes it from its great cousin.

Mute swan cygnets growing well.

I am presuming these magnificent cattle have been introduced to the reserve for conservation grazing. Hopefully we might get some cattle egrets too.

    Hi Ray, lovely photos as ever. I haven’t seen the cattle yet. Are they up along the railway line where the llamas are?

    They do look good.

    Best wishes to you and Barbara
