WWT Ashlawn Cutting Reserve and Adjacent Farmland.

Marsh Marigold

I have never been a "patch birder" but I think that might change! Almost on my doorstep, I have the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust Reserve - Ashlawn Cutting and non-reserve surrounding farmland / set aside fields. This morning I walked (dog less!) around the area and I am certainly considering regular visits! It will also give me greater experience in non-bird wildlife, especially wild flowers, butterflies and insects. Bird sightings at end of post.
