Today has been unbelievably mild for March in our corner of the South East of England. DD had her practice walk for her Duke of Edinburgh award this morning, so DH and I took DS to Warnham Nature Reserve. It is a hop and a skip from home, and is one of DS's favourite places.
We only had a short time there, and spent most of it in one hide, just watching the birds. DH and I shared my camera.
A grey heron was stalking along the opposite bank. He was hunting, and caught an unwary frog. (DS got a photo of that, which I may link to soon.)
A tufted duck kept his golden eye on us.
It was a peaceful, serene hour in the midst of a busy week.
