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!
