RSPB Fowlmere

A recent trip to the RSPB Fowlmere to take in the tranquillity of this wonderful nature reserve.
RSPB Fowlmere is situated  between Fowlmere and Melbourn in the Cambridshire countryside. It is  designated a biological site of special scientific interest  called Fowlmere Watercress Beds.
Armed with my 300mm Nikon lens, I for one was hoping to capture some recent sightings of Kingfisher’s, no luck this time, never mind it was great to amble around this reserve and take in all of its natural beauty.
Whilst walking around there were plenty to photograph, mainly Fauna and very few birds, only birds I managed to see were Ducks, Grey Lags and the very occasional Turtle  Doves,  this did not bother me as the walk around the site was peaceful and tranquil.
After the walk around which lasted about 3 hours it was time to take in a small picnic, which has its own picnic area, small benches and seats are provided under a canopy of trees which provides shade when it gets hot.
The staff at the reserve were very helpful and certain days they provide tour guides around the site, this is great if you have never been before.
