Lodmoor Reserve Visit (Part 2 )

The second of a three part series of images taken at the Lodmoor Reserve, Weymouth.

The Black-tailed Godwit. 
A superb wader to photograph and study. 
You can usually find this species at Lodmoor at this time.






Another resident that can always be found here is the Little Egret.



More of the Black-tailed Godwit.




Of course there is always the much overlooked Moorhen to be found.


Common Snipe. 
A secretive bird normally. 
They show out quite well at Lodmoor, but you have to really search for them.


The ubiquitous Grey Heron a resident of the Reserve usually at least four or five throughout.




Another Small White Butterfly with a nice background.


Sandwich Tern
I was alerted to these few birds as there was an immature making a lot of noise begging for food from an adult.

  1. Well I love the moorhen best ;-) Super photos Roy. You get to see a nice selection of waders there are Lodmoor. K and I visited a couple of times in the winter but didn't see a huge amount.

    1. Thanks Mandy. There is nothing much different at the moment. Needs another month before it gets interesting.
