Outdoor Meeting: Woolston Eyes Nature Reserve

On Saturday 23rd April eleven of us enjoyed a good day's birding at Woolston Eyes which was made even better by some warm sunshine. Our target specie, Black-necked grebe, showed well with the bright sunshine picking out its lovely plumage. This visit was possible courtesy of Woolston Eyes Conservation Group which manages this SSSI reserve.
