Image of the Month

Each month we are selecting a photograph taken by one of our members. It might not be technically perfect – but it sums up the events of that month.

December

The red berries which the Dunnock is perched on bring a seasonal touch to our December image captured at Swaddywell Pit by Andy Smith.  During his walk he reported seeing a green woodpecker, redwing, fieldfare, tree sparrows, goldfinch, red kite, kestrel, assorted tits and a pair of male bullfinches. A good day out!

November

Here is the image for November.  It is a spectacular view of the murmuration over one of the bird hides at the Etton Maxey reserve.  It was taken by Bob Titman.

This is the October image – just one of the finds at a small mammal survey carried our at the Vergette Wood-Meadow at Etton.  It was taken by Martin Parsons.

This is the latest reserve to be taken on by the Langdyke Countryside Trust. It is on the left just over the bridge as you leave Etton to head for Maxey.
