I recently visited Attenborough Nature Reserve for the first time in years as I was in need of a change of scene. Run by the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust it covers 205 hectares of lakes, wetland, grassland and scrub. There are several walks around the reserve – on this occasion we did the Tufted Duck Nature Trail which took us past some of the lakes as well as through areas of grassland.
There are plenty of birds to see – we spotted ducks, geese, swans and herons on this visit.
And there are also damselflies and dragonflies.
A lovely place for a walk, it is free to enter though there is a small charge to use the car park. You can find more photos here.
