Had the day off today, so I managed to get to nature reserve for a little while. I spooked a Buzzard before I had chance to photograph it. But I did see plenty of these Grey squirrels about, this pair just reminded me of a bookends sitting on a shelf!

At last a little bit of sunshine, so I quickly took advantage and made my way to the nature reserve. Unfortunately for me everyman and his dog were also out enjoying the sun. But at least you can always rely on these little chaps to provide a photo opportunity. This one followed me around for quite awhile, before eventually leaving to see off another male Robin trying to get on his patch.

Snow at the nature reserve

Just a few photos of Alcester nature reserve in the snow, not really much to say about them except I hope you enjoy them. The close up pic is, I believe Small Teasel (Dipsacus pilosus) which is apparently rare locally, and is one of the reasons the nature reserve exists.
