Noddle Hill on a sunny November day

 We had a walk around this lovely nature reserve this morning. Blue skies, a ground frost and lovely autumn colours. The photo above shows a Spindle (Euonymus europaeus) loaded with berries by the fishing lake.
  We have a peek at Wawne drain and flush a Kingfisher, which perches a while ahead and then flies away before the kids have a chance of watching it.
 On the scrubby middle of the reserve a Redwing feeds on Hawthorn berries, and in the Alders near the  carpark a group of Siskins feeds twittering contentedly.
