Paxton Pits Nature Reserve, Cambridge (April 2014)

Over Easter, i went for a walk in the sunshine at a local nature Reserve called Paxton Pits, in Little Paxton in Cambridgeshire. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the weather was a little breezy but perfect for a walk. I'd never been here before so wasn't sure what to expect but thought i'd document my time there. I'm hoping to go back over the Summer, so maybe i'll share my next trip too to show the difference as it's still early Spring. There's supposed to be plenty of wildlife at the pits but as it's still a little early, there wasn't all that much. We were told that Nightingales were starting to be sighted and you could hear Turtle Doves too, although might not be able to see them. Honestly, i have no idea what a Turtle Dove sounds like so i could have heard one and not realised.

Paxton Pits is actually a part active, part disused gravel pit. Those that are disused have been turned into nature reserves and there's 78 hectares of lakes, riverside, meadow, reedbed, scrub and woodland available to explore. Today, i thought i'd just share with you some of the photographs i took of my Spring walk.

And i'll leave you with a swan butt! Happy Spring!
