On Sunday afternoon we went through the lanes to Bystock Nature Reserve.

The water lilies in the pool have very large leaves and look beautiful in the sunshine.

The reserve is a mixture of boggy pools, heath and woodland.

The bog has boardwalks for ease of crossing and the Common Lizards use these for sunbathing.

Fern fronds emerging.

Just North of Bystock is a huge quarry.

A flock of gulls were sitting at the edge of one of its pools.

They suddenly took the air in a great disparate cloud.

Thanks as usual to Ian for his chauffeuring and to Helen for making it appear that photographing anything and everything is not totally daft!
