The sun was actually out today so I paid another visit to Straws Bridge Nature Reserve in Derbyshire, (UK) to have a walk around the lake and do a spot of bird watching.
The other people who visit are really friendly so there's always someone to have a chat to. I personally like to visit to take photographs of the bird life. The birds aren't always so obliging as they don't stay still for too long.
There is a good mix of gulls, Egyptian Geese, tufted ducks, Chinese Geese, swans and more. I don't know every bird I see but I'm trying to learn. Remembering them is the problem!
