A Saturday Walk on the Reserve


Sarah and I decided to go for a walk to the Nature Reserve on a fine September Saturday, although we only saw limited wildlife it was great to get out and about, the images below are just a few things we saw.
I think the Dragonfly is a Ruddy but it could also be a Common Darter??
