Calling all photographers.... location photos wanted!

We are looking for photos of nature reserves, wildlife refuges, bird sanctuaries, etc., to use in the Locations section of Opus, because we have many location articles with no images to show the merits of that particular place.

There are many people on Birdforum who visit this type of location to bird and take bird photos, so please, next time you are out birding, take a few landscape photos as well. Alternatively, you may already have some shots from your favourite locations, so please check your stock of images and post them here in this thread, or in the Landscape Gallery on BF and add a note here to let us know.

You can check which locations need images on this page.

On behalf of the Opus Editors, thanks .....

Thanks Sy V

I've uploaded one for the Upton Warren - there was already one for the Flashes Pools.

The article could possibly take one (or two) more pictures if they would better represent the site.

Good choice.
I'm doing the Moors at Upton Warren (before the work party starts), and Piper's Hill wood (SO958650) this morning... should get a few more.

We actually had one already. I've just merged the two of them, although the existing one could certainly still use more information.

I have a few pictures from Hawk Mountain Sanctuary I took during the winter. (I see you have a fall picture. (they are both taken from "Kettle View" lookout. You can use them if you'd like...Is there a Page on Leaser Lake? It's not really a designated reserve or anything but it is a good birding spot?

Thanks for those pics - I've uploaded one of them

I can't find anything for Leaser Lake, please feel free to start an article for it - they don't have to be 'official (p)reserves. Just ask if you need any help.
