Picture of a moorhen at Victoria Quays, Leeds.
Walking down to the Calls for a coffee afterwards I strolled around the Brewery Wharf area on the Leeds waterfront and walked back to the city centre via Victoria Quays and Navigation Walk.
I love the small area around Victoria Quays with the former dock that is now a haven for wildlife here in the centre of Leeds. The yellow flag iris have now flowered, the bullrushes are in their prime and the was a moorhen and a couple of juveniles paddling around the dock.
You can see the moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) in the above photo in between lily pads that in places almost cover the surface of the old dock.
