Rodley Nature Reserve

This weekend I took my mum and dad along to Rodley Nature Reserve where an overcast sky cleared unexpectedly to reveal glorious sunshine, and some enjoyable sightings.

Male and female Gatekeepers



A fresh looking Peacock butterfly


At the dragonfly ponds a female Brown Hawker.



A male Common Darter


Another Female Brown Hawker

 

Tim's Field is planted with a mix of cereals, quinoa, kale and sunflower to provide cover and an abundance of seeds. Here's a view of the mixed vegetation.
