Summer Leys LNR


After feeling ill throughout Christmas, I finally dragged myself down to my old stamping ground, Summer Leys, today. There had been a heavy frost and everything had a cold, white coating.


For me, the best birds there were the hordes of Fieldfares just to the west of the car-park.




By contrast, there was just a mere sprinkling of Redwings with their noisier cousins.


On Mary's Lake, this drake Goldeneye swam quite close, but it's often tricky to get photos of birds on water, especially when they keep diving...
