some shots from the new nature reserve in LUNT by sefton church.
only open for two years but they have done a fantastic job in such a short time there is also an arcalogical dig there.the dig contains 3 of the oldest houses built in britain and has brought up loads of finds.
it was my first visit there and i was amazed at the wildlife there (i used to play around there when i was a kid when it was all fields).
there is a few small lakes and a couple of miles of reed beds plus plenty of open fields.there are a lot of hides with wooden seating for watching the birdis and the odd deer coming in to drink.plenty of car parking space and they just ask for a small donation to enter (£2).they only snag at the moment is there is no toilets yet.
its run by voulenteers who will tell you what birds are on the reserve at that time.it will only get better as time goes on.
i went to check out the place and only took a couple of lenses with me so i missed out on some great shots.
this is what i saw yesterday...7 kestrals,4 buzzards,canada geese,pink footed geese,blue tits,great tits,wrens(at least 30),tufted ducks,mallards,pheasants,brown legged partridge,moorhens,coots,a lovely flock of lapwings,common terns,lesser black backed gulls and at least 20 robins.
if you are needing the loo you can use the toilets in the punchbowl(2 minutes drive away).give it a go,you will not be disapointed,graham.
