In my spare time, I often look around for local nature reserves, to see what I can find locally and within a few minutes traveling distance.
There are a number of reserves around my local area, and for the first time today I ventured out to Lashford Lane Fen, I had looked for this previously but it had been well hidden.
What attracted me to this today was that I heard there was a bird hide on the reserve, so I thought I would pay a visit and see if I could set-up my camera and wait patiently for something to show up worthy of photographing.
After a while it seemed that all the wildlife that was going to show up today was a robin or two, so I thought rather than going home empty, I would take a shot or two of the robin, especially as it is that time of year when they are nesting and bringing up their chicks, I may have to wait a couple of weeks to see the first flights, but in the meantime I captured a mother collecting more nesting materials and food.
