Gosforth Nature Reserve

Posted on 9 June, 2020 at 9:45

The Natural History Society of Northumbria (NHSN) plays quite a big part in our lives - and Gosforth Nature Reserve in particular. The Reserve has been closed for several weeks now - but has just re-opened, with social distancing guidelines in place.  Unfortunately, our 'shielding' situation means that it is not really an option for us.

Here are some images I've taken at the Reserve - to show what we are missing!
Kingfishers always attract the photographers...






Common Terns nest on the platform in the lake.  They make for some beautiful flight shots...








Moorhens are very common - and largely overlooked.  But I enjoyed watching this one tussling with reeds for nest-building purposes...



And, of course, the other activity I miss is the forced labour of the working party - clearing reeds is always a popular pastime!
