The Lodge, Head office of the RSPB. Very nice surrounding for a workplace.
Even the Phesant enjoyed the late showing of Bluebells at the end of May.
Our first star bird of the day was this Raven, one of the family that had nested and hatched
three young in the area around the hillfort, on Gallery Hill.
The late spring sunshine brought the butterflies out, here a Speckled wood....
...... and a Small copper.
There was lots of activity in front of the Meadow hide.
A cock Pheasant was courting these two hens.
The pool was very popular with many birds, this Great Spotted woodpecker enjoyed the water....
..... and the peanut feeder.
Nice to see this Nuthatch, a dainty little bird.
