Rodley Nature Reserve pondlife

We visited Rodley Nature Reserve this weekend and enjoyed a walk around the dragonfly ponds which were teeming with toads. This one took time out from courting duties to bask in the sunshine. I also spotted my first two butterflies of the year, two fresh Small Tortoiseshells in the Willow Coppice. Yay! These two were too distant for a decent photo, so purely for reference purposes.

In the managers garden, we saw Reed Bunting, Greenfinch, and a flock of 12+ Linnets. Keep up to date with Rodley Nature Reserve's Latest Sightings page.


  1. Good to see the Butterfly appearing

  2. My pond has masses of spawn but I haven't seen or heard a single frog this year.

  3. Hello, yes good to see the Small Tortoiseshells,I think what I thought were frogs were actually toads. Im not very good with my amphibians! Thanks for dropping by, Linda
