Brockholes Nature Reserve is a Wetland and Wildlife Reserve near Preston, next to Jct 31 of the M6 alongside the River Ribble. It only opened 18 months ago. We visited today on a sunny Autumnal day.
The Summer birds have left and the Winter visitors haven't arrived yet, so it was very quiet, but peaceful and beautiful nontheless!

This month's Photo Contest at Brockholes is 'Fungi', so I was looking in particular for Mushrooms!!
