A Saturday morning walk in Hyde Park with Sue. We had gone to see if we could see the Little Owls but they were not showing at either of the usual spots.

The usual waterfowl were present on the Serpentine and it was a beautiful crisp morning for a walk in the park.

Passing the Italian garden on our way out I did see these pair of Red-Crested Pochard – the drake looking particularly splendid

Norfolk Skies

Posted: November 12, 2019 in Landscape, Natural History

I recently took a trip to Norfolk and got some great photos of the evening skies.

The River Camel is the predominant River in this area and we encountered it many times during our visit from its beginnings as a small river to the estuary at Padstow.

After watching England beat Tonga 35-3 at the Rugby World Cup, we wondered about going out as it had been raining heavily all morning, but the sun came out early afternoon and so we drove to Roadford reservoir on the edge of Dartmoor.  Roadford Reservoir is a man-made lake, fed by the River Wolf, completed in 1989 as water storage for Plymouth and North Devon.

After a cup of tea at the cafe near the dam we went up to the nature reserve but there was not much to see.

It is quite odd to see roads going down to the water and the remains of trees, which are all that can be seen of the valley that existed here before the dam was built.
