Winnall Moors Nature Reserve

At the weekend we visited Winnall Moors Nature Reserve in Winchester.  Its such an oasis of calm and wildlife in the midst of a city (less than a mile from Winchester High Street). We hoped to see kingfishers and water voles but they weren’t showing while we were there. The warblers were in fine song however and we sat for quite a while in the sunshine at the pond area surrounded by reeds and the reed warblers. I managed to get a photo of one.
