Along the River Bank

A river runs along the Northern edge of the Parkland where I regularly walk and I endeavour to walk the bank from time to time.  There can be plenty to see along the bank at various times of the year.
Currently it is flowers, butterflies, insects and some birds if your lucky, including Reed and Sedge Warblers. During the winter geese flocks are the likely target for the camera.
