Over the last few years the Lucas family have become weekday regulars at the reserve and we have come to know them very well. Both Ben (11) and Noah (6) are the keenest of the five children and love to share their knowledge about the wildlife that they see.
Capturing these moments on a camera has always been part of the joy that they both get from the experience and they always love showing us what they have seen. Last week both boys spent the afternoon trying to get close to the invertebrate life on the marsh and I was simply blown away with some of the results...
I asked their Mum if some of their shots could be sent my way and here they are for your enjoyment...
