Enjoy this series of images taken at the Feeding Area during this past autumn and winter.
I didn't get down to the reserve as much as I'd planned, so no 'exotics' in this series. Hopefully, next year will be better.
Low Barns Visitor Centre, near Bishop Auckland, run by Durham Wildlife Trust. A photography group is based there and has a very good feeding area set up for photographers.
Far Ings NNR, on the south bank of the Humber, run by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. An option to Blacktoft in this area and close to Worlaby which is good for owl sightings at certain times of the year.
Last, Attenborough Nature Centre, run by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. I discovered this via images on Flickr and have added it to my list of places to visit, so can't personally recommend it but the website promises a good time!
