(Pardon the Scottish Accent)
An area I call the peninsular. Will have viewing hides in near future. Always puts on this display in autumn in very early morning sun.
Finchampstead ridges to rear. Banking between Main Reed beds and Manor Lake across middle.
Two Egyptian geese flying over grasslands which were deep gravel pits two years ago.
Finchampstead ridges again to rear. Foreground is old gravel pit restored to low lying wetlands this past year.
A flock of Wigeon, in flight after taking off from lake on restored area. It is astonishing how quickly wildlife colonise an area; often while heavy plant (e.g. bulldozers, excavators, etc) are trundling around.
And now, for something I've never seen before. A rainbow in the grass. Everything had to be just right for this to happen. Lowish early morning sun - about 9:00am last Sunday. Slight slope to hill. Dew covered grass.
I can only assume that sunlight is being reflected off the rear of each dew droplet and then being refracted as it passes through the water.
90% luck, 5% field craft, 5% camera skills.

I think the last one is the end of the rainbow Angus. Don't forget your friends on here when you collect your pot of gold ...

Lovely autumnal carpet of leaves., and it looks like there's loads more leaves to come down yet too. Great shot ...
