Tuesday 13 January

Damp, Cool Morning

 Can't resist the sunrise over the lodge

Tern Rafts waiting for their residents to return - the gulls and other birds make good use of it during the rest of the year
Goosanders - males out numbering the females, they seem to avoid all human activity, especially me and the camera.

River Yarrow
Just peeping through, Russian Comfrey - Symphytum x uplandicum

 Hazel - Corylus avellana, just the male catkins no sign of the female flowers yet.

 Pendulous Sedge - Carex pendula

Spotted Dead Nettle - Lamium maculatum

Take Care


  1. So the terns will chase the other birds away so they can use their rafts?

  2. The terns are really tough little birds they soon clear the rafts and if the rangers have to go near them during their breeding seasons hard hats are needed :)


Let me know you looked in :)
