Paxton Pits

I enjoy visiting Paxton Pits Nature Reserve, but the place seems to suffer from a strange physical phenomenon.  It seems that, wherever you stand around the lake, the wildlife is always at the opposite side.  Spooky...

The closest bird we saw was a Chaffinch on one of the feeders.



As normal, the lake was full of Cormorants, which spent their time diving and then drying out.


There were also the "usual suspects" in the form of a Canada Goose and a Mallard.



Nothing very exciting, in other words, so I was forced to photograph the flowers instead.  One of last year's bullrushes, speedwell and some (rather abundant) wild strawberries.
