July Field Meeting: Dunnignton Nature Reserve York

UPDATE: Richard Bell has just sent in his underwater video recorded on the day. Scroll down to watch it.

DSCF6571.Wakey NatsYork based nature photographer Terry Weston acts as warden for the small nature reserve at Dunnington, near York. After Terry came and gave us a talk about the reserve, we decided to hold a field meeting there and today was the day. Although I couldn’t make it due to work commitments, eight of our members enjoyed a super day there including indulging in a spot of pond dipping, catching leeches and snails. Terry also pointed out a family of sparrowhawks and the adult birds were watched feeding the chicks. A big thank you to Terry and also to Roger for sending in the report and photos.
