RSPB Rye Meads...always of interest..

Up in Essex so had to visit one of my fav reserves, Rye Meads.  Quite a few birds about; a Kingfisher flew passed the Draper Hide but didn't stop.  Didn't see any Kingfishers from the kingfisher hide today..

but...
A Dragon (ID needed please)



A Water Vole enjoying of of its '5-a-day'



A melarge of Gadwalls having quite a viscious fight!





A few Long-tailed Tits flitting through..

One of the Little Grebe families...


and on the way out, a Rabbit under the bird feeders.

The light was dreadful and I had the wrong lens on!!  But hey.. it was great to be there :)

Tricia ... the 'dragon' is a female Common Darter.

I can recommend Britain's Dragonflies (3rd Edition) by Dave Smallshire & Andy Swash

Superb shots of the vole Tricia and very special to get the Little Grebes.

Frank... thanks for the ID.. I'm away from home and didn't have my Dragon/Damsel book with me.

Roy ... thank you. The little Grebe youngsters certainly get the 'aw' award :)
