Local Nature Reserve

Popped along to our local nature reserve today; which is about 10 minutes from home.

The reserve has been created within Sutcliffe Park, the river used to run under the road and covered culvert through the park. This was remodelled several years ago to reintroduce a flood area to protect areas further down stream. Also this created a marshy area for wildlife to return. It is now an oasis in the middle of two major roads.

There are suppose to be dragonflies, damselflies, herons, little egrets, kingfishers and reed warblers there but I only saw a heron today along with the usual suspects of ducks, coots and moorhens.
