The Locality Gallery has again expanded well this month, due mainly to a visit to a local country park and a farmland walk beside the river Stour.

Most of the new additions are waterbirds of some sort including the Coot, Moorhen and some interesting Mallard Hybrids. We were pleased also to add a couple of woodland birds with our first pictures of the Nuthatch and Treecreeper.

Another outing this month was to Marwell Zoological Park where this picture of a Mandarin Duck was taken. The problem is, if I include a page for the Mandarin, I would have to add the Flamingos, Rheas, Ostriches, Penguins......
