Attenborough Afternoon

A walk around Nottinghamshire's Attenborough Nature Reserve this afternoon.
Wildfowl were the main attraction, with winter birds starting to arrive. This Mute Swan was getting quite aggressive.

The origins of this Shelduck are quite dubious as it clearly loves to feed on the grain on offer near the visitor centre.



Seven Red-crested Pochards were on Church Pond including this rather attractive leucistic individual.



These two young House Sparrows were very confiding, as most of them are around the reserve.
