Autumn Antics!

Autumn has definitely arrived. Although the temperature is still eerily warm it is starting to feel more autumnal on the reserve and the trees are starting to turn. Not much to report except a very exciting sighting of a mammal, its head popped up out of the water and it then swam across the far side of Ivy Lake. This was viewed from Ivy South Hide by one of our volunteers visiting the reserve with his family. Suspect = otter!

I took our new camera out for a play today and took this shoot from Ivy South hide:

And this badger eye view of Woodland Hide!

I leave you with some yellow spiky fungus I found growing on a log. It looked a little bit like a bright yellow hedgehog!
