Nature has continued to enjoy the English summer – even if July’s weather has been a bit mixed at times.
The early hot weather has meant that a lot of species have been in abundance this year.
The ruddy darter in our main picture was out in all its spectacular glory at Swaddywell and proved a great image for Brian Lawrence to capture.
Each month we select photographs taken by our Facebook members and posted on our site. They might not be technically perfect – but they sum up the events of that month. Here are some other images from July.
After the lockdown caused by Coronavirus our work parties started to get back to some normality – although restricted in numbers and doing work with socially distancing precautions in place.
Across all of our reserves there was plenty of nature to capture. This scene at Swaddywell was photographed by Ian Wilson.
Here are just some of the photos taken by our members and supporters.
