photos of a lovely evening walk

The other night i had a long walk down the reserve all the way down to the bridge.
It was such a lovely walk, so peaceful and here are a few pictures i took along the way.

new sightings

The nights are now becoming longer and lighter and people are about, and unfortunatley they have arrived at the reserve and have left some unsightly mess. Its such a shame that some people out there can be so lazy in not taking their rubbish to a council recycling depot.

But hey on a good note, we now have a new sign at the entrance....

Doesnt it look great...
So just a reminder if you are at the reserve and you do see anything strange then please do leave a message on here and then the Friends group can look into it, remember you are our eyes and ears. Thankyou.

Today while walking down the railway line i was pleasantly surprised. The reserve is looking good, well apart from the fly tipping which has taken place in the carpark.
Blossom is showing, the cowslips are shining and the wildlife is coming to life.

here i think is a miner bee.... if iam wrong please do let me know. There has been a few of these hoovering around. quite funny looking things when you really look at them with there long pointy noses.
Well finally spring is here, keep your eye out for what you may see when you are down there.



As you maybe aware Charlotte Lowry has now left cambridgeshire county council due to goverments cuts. Its a sad time as Charlotte has done so much to bring Isleham Nature Reserve back to life. On behalf of the friends group Andrew the warden, gave Charlotte a good send off with a lovely bouquet and some chocolates, which she was most surprised by. As a group we would like to say good luck in everything you do and thankyou . You will be missed.

Reported by Tony Weston this week -
Just to report in that the stubble fields adjacent to nature reserve and by
the drove opposite to Universal garage are heaving with skylarks. I threw a
ball for the dog and put up birds in every throw. Over 12 in one throw.
Numbers must be in the 100's.
