Gallery of some seasonal highlights on the wildlife reserve. All the photographs are taken on the reserve.

January

Rainfall as at 6th January 2018

After being completely dry since September, Windmill Pond at last shows signs of filling up after some rainfall in November to 6th January 2018.

The newly part-filled pond attracted the first new bird species of the year. A Common Sandpiper - a Winter Migrant.

And this Green Sandpiper, another Winter Visitor.

 

Meadow Pipits also feed at Windmill Pond in January. They are also Winter and Passage Migrants.

Other migrants that feed around Windmill Pond include small groups of Common Chiffchaffs.

Yellow Lupin plants are sprouting in the Olive Grove where they have been sown as a green manure. They are a species native to Portugal.
