Lots of frogs spawning and making lots of noise at Attenborough Nature Reserve.

For various reasons … weather, health, deus ex machina … trips to the local Nature Reserves have been a bit few and far between lately so, without any new bird pictures, quite a bit of my time is being spent on tidying up computers etc.
These are a few of the pictures I have taken with my iPhone on previous trips out. I always have the phone handy for little bits and pieces that might take my eye, but don’t merit getting the heavyweight out for. I think they came from Langford Lowfields and Attenborough Nature Reserve, Nottinghamshire, and Chambers Farm Wood, Lincolnshire.
