Testing the waters at Adel Dam

Testing the waters at Adel Dam

One of the photo walks happening this February is the wildlife photography masterclass at Golden Acre Park and Adel Dam Nature Reserve. I popped over there this morning for half an hour or so just to see how the wildlife was holding up in the midst of such a peculiar Winter.The place was alive and bursting with as much wildlife as ever. It was great just to get a reminder of just how special location this place really is! As I entered the reserve I noticed the board had sightings for not just fox and deer but Water Rail (!!!) for the 24th AND 25th Jan! I didn’t get a sighting of this elusive bird in my short time there but I did see a heck of a lot, including an adult and juvenile heron jousting in mid-air!

I managed to take a few photos while I was there too…
