The last day of summer?!

Despite not feeling brilliant it was a nice Monday evening and with the weather potentially turning awful during the week i thought it was a good chance to take a walk along the river at my nearest nature reserve - Oughtonhead Common in Hitchin. I would really recommend people take a trip down there, summer or winter it's a lovely walk and although it's not a place for real rare animals this year i've been treated to water rail, kingfisher, goldcrest and little owl amongst others. It's quite a popular walk amongst dog walkers and people with children etc, which i think makes the animals that little bit tamer....monday night was no exception with some Long Tailed Tits being really confident and letting me get very close. Enjoy the pictures!
