An Evening at Summer Leys (Northants) - 9th July 2015
I love Summer Leys Nature Reserve in Northamptonshire and needing to transport Abigail to her boyfriends in nearby Bozeat, the opportunity for an evening visit could not be passed! Nothing exceptional was found, a species list can be found at the end of this post, but it was really nice sitting in the hides watching life on the water unfold! Very few birders were present, the majority being walkers, joggers and dog walkers. I wish I could of stayed longer but food was waiting!
Macro with a 500mm lens ++ is NOT easy!
