Filey Dams – 22/02/14

Paid a brief visit to this little gem of a reserve hidden behind the “Wharfedale” housing estate, whilst on the way to Filey Brigg. You never know what you may find at this compact site, as it has hosted many rare and scarce birds over the years. On this occasion there was nothing unusual to be found. The light was excellent however, making some of our commoner species great subjects for a little photography.
