Jack Snipe with Kingcups

May 1, 2011

Jack Snipe with Kingcups, (or Marsh Marigolds if you prefer). The  connection between the subjects was during a visit to the Alvecote Nature Reserve, just near Tamworth. Some forty plus years ago the area was once a huge smoking  colliery spoil heap. Not so today, over the years there has been a lot of trees planted,  it now resembles a nature reserve and can be a productive spot for birding.

With more than 300 acres to explore, reports state that you can grab at least 125 species here throughout the year, including little ringed plover, grasshopper warbler and snipe of course. Even the Osprey has been sited here , so there is plenty of scoping opportunities…
