Hi, I'd like to introduce myself, I blog at: http://www.viewsfromanurbanlake.co.uk
a blog about the wildlife (all forms) found around Manor Farm in Milton Keynes (and some things beyond). I've been blogging since 2012, but the patch changed from a local, small, urban, lake (hence the blog name) to a larger nature reserve.
I'm fortunate to live just over the road from this newly created (inland) nature reserve with my family (so there are often tales of my kids out enjoying the wonders of nature). It is currently a nature reserve in construction (no hides, yet, and paths only just going in) but has had some wonderful birds over the last few years (while it was being dug out as a working gravel extraction site) from Cattle Egret to Pec Sand, and the parks trust plans will slowly turn the area into a flood plain forest.
I'l post my regular updates here from now on
I've just found this forum, and am so glad I did, as I can now go and look at all the wonderful blogs already posted.
Thanks for reading.
