Warnham, Swans & Large Skippers

After lunch and a morning of photo editing, we drove to Warnham Nature Reserve near Horsham for a stroll in this perfect summer’s day. Sue enjoyed the beauty it. We watched the tern family attacking the gulls that came too near their floating nest. This are the furthest inland that common terns have been recorded nesting apparently. Sam, the warden, created a floating platform with the right substrate and they turned up soon after. A swan family with four cygnets were near the path, and the male eyed us suspiciously, but allowed us to pass. Two Large Skippers gave me a photo op.
