Birds of Bretton - Part One

Bretton Lakes nature reserve is my local patch. Formerly managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust it is now under the direct control of the local council. Whether or not this is a good thing remains to be seen but things seem to be working ok at the moment.

Here are a selection of the many photographs I have taken at this reserve. They are in no particular date order but most are taken in the spring and summer.

There is a more informed look at this reserve on this blog - Bluebirder

  1. Well, I have to say - 'bungling' bird ID or location maybe - but certainly not photography -WOW! I did so enjoy looking at your posts. You must have a nice camera/lens setup to get such great detail and clarity. I made these pictures large and they were just perfect! I especially loved that bittern and you are right - you need lots of patience and binoculars to even spot one from afar - great, great capture!
    And thanks so much for your kind words about my blog. Your blog name is really neat - creative ;-)
