19 October 2014: Upton Warren Nature Reserve, Worcestershire.

My wife and I spent the afternoon vivting the National Trust proerty of Hanbury Hall in Worcestershire. When we had finished we called at Upton Warren, about a 1 minute drive, to spend an hour or so at one of the hides to finish the day off. Light was fading as evening set in but we managed to see a few birds but no Kingfisher treat for the good lady.
