My interest in wildlife photography has built up slowly over the past 2 years. I suppose it's a consequence of the pandemic and lockdowns, I began to explore my local area more and connect with the wildlife. And most recently, I've grown very fond of Attenborough Nature Reserve which is just a short journey from home for me. I visited twice in April, here's some of my favourite photos from those visits.
You can find more of my photography on Pixelfed and Flickr.

This was a relatively short walk around the reserve with my partner, so I didn't spend too much time running off with my camera. My favourite discovery of the day was the quality of the bacon sandwiches in the visitors' centre.
This time I went to the reserve on my own so was much more focused on the wildlife and my photography. I spent most of my time in one of the bird hides on the site but saw little of interest to photograph from there. My best photos of the day actually came from the vicinity of the car park (the duck, the swan and the curious moorhen).
I really enjoyed both these visits and I'm going to see if I can make this a regular thing. Perhaps there will be another Attenborough Nature Reserve post next month...
