I live in Northamptsonshire and there are a lot of old gravel pits which have been turned into nature reserves. Stanwick Lakes is fairly new but the bird population and wild life is increasing every year. It also has plenty to keep the younger members of the family happy.The last time I visited I had the company of a Stoat who ran along side me for a quarter of my walk. I like visiting Barnwell Nature Reserve it is much smaller but has a number of hides and the River Nene runs round the parimeter. They have a Kingfishers which breed every year and I have been lucky enough to spot them on many occassions and they always give me a thrill, such beautiful birds. Very Happy
