Northamptonshire was again a foggy place yesterday.
I went back to Titchmarsh nature reserve yesterday – this was the first nature reserve I was involved with the acquisition of when I was Director of the Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust
A wet land reserve created from gravel extraction in the mid 1980s – today it is an SSSI and part of the Nene Valley Special Protection Area – habitat creation really works for wildlife
This is one of the gravel pits next to the Heronry – there was a bittern about but we didn’t see it but we did watch a Cetti’s warbler – there weren’t a Titichmarsh in the 1980s.
Great spotted woodpecker on a bird feeder by one of the hides
Male and female today
Great to go back and see so many wildfowl on the waters – well over 750
