30 Days Wild 2021 – Day Nineteen.

David chose the 250 acre reserve of Brockholes nr Preston, with its woodland, meadows, pools and reed beds. This year, Brockholes is celebrating 10 years of wildlife! We spent three hours walking around the reserve, watching damselflies flit along the paths, and dragonflies hum about like mini helicopters. The four spotted chaser was a new species for me. Of the flora there were common spotted and marsh orchids. Of the avian life we spotted oyster catchers, a male reed bunting (another first sighting), visiting common terns (or sea swallows), a summer visitor to the UK (another first), and a kestrel sand bathing! We had a perfect day out and here’s some of my photos I managed to capture with David’s Nikon. 

What’s your favourite nature reserve?

Thanks for reading, and stay wild!
