It feels very strange in our house at the moment as DH and DD are both away. Yesterday DS and I decided to check out Warnham nature reserve, which is on the outskirts of a nearby town. DS is currently loving wildlife photography and I need very little excuse to abandon my housework and disappear into the countryside for a while!
Warnham is run by the local council, and only charges a nominal entrance fee. We loved it. We sat in the meadow and watched the insects.
We were dazzled by the light on the water of a millpond.
|DS took this one!|
We wandered through the woods and marvelled at the butterflies.
|A comma butterfly|
We were very glad we didn't meet any stag beetles!
|A stag beetle hotel!|
We lingered in the hide watching birds on the feeders. We loved the antics of the chaffinches.
The squirrels amused us with their acrobatics.
|DS took this one too!|
|And this one!|
