I managed to get out again after all on Saturday evening, making the most of what turned out to be a great day, weather wise the sun was out all day and right into the evening.
So I thought I would show you all Mere Sands Wood, I have posted lots of bird pics from here before, but with great evening light I wanted to show you what a great place this is.
Mere Sands is about 10 mins from Martin Mere WWT reserve and about 20 mins in the car from my house and part of what I call my local patches, although not on my doorstep like I wish they where.
So here are the pics I took and hope that I have managed to capture the place for you.
The final pic is a young Coot which came in real close and let me take a few shots. It still surprises me that there aren't more fish eating birds around the place because you can see lots of fish from the hides scooping insects off the surface of the lakes.
Mere Sands is a very peacefull place and somewhere worth visiting after a stressfull day in work, it really helps you unwind.
