This gave me some nice photo opportunities while taking a walk around Rodden Reserve. Here are some grass seeds and leaves touched by the frost and the early morning sun.

These Black-headed Gulls were lined up on the bridge as if to say 'whose going to be first to be skinny dipping then!'
Below is the reason for my title today. At last, I seem to be getting closer to my goal of taking a decent photograph of Winter Wren. This little guy let me get closer and closer to him, one small step at a time. At the time he was having a singing battle with a wren on the other side of the path. Made my day! (-:

The second was taken a couple of days later as some rain clouds were approaching.

Fleeing sheep - was this because I hadn't had a bath for a week and they were downwind??? (-:
A view of their pasture.
I think I'll go on this walk again..........

Unfortunately we got there when the tide was at its lowest so any birds were really distant, it was still a lovely place and day for a walk though. We could hear the Curlew with their evocative call and saw some distant Shelduck and Redshank out near the tideline.
I kept trying to get closer to the Kestrel, but each time I did, he would swoop away a bit further and hover again! This is the best photo I could get.

There's not much in flower now, but this Mimulus was a lovely splash of brightness along the Rodden brook.
There were still plenty of dragonflies about. I definitely identified Common and Southern Hawkers and Common Darter. I guess all that will change when we get a few sharp frosts.
