Well-known photographer Ian Clipson has a new exhibition opening at Waters’ Edge Visitor Centre on Saturday 30 June.
Racing: Land and Sea follows the success of his aviation heritage and architectural photography exhibitions held at the centre last year.
Ian’s photographs include stunning shots of the tall ships on the Humber, cars, motorcycles and there’s even a pigeon – Speckles, who has lived and Waters Edge for about a year and thinks he’s duck.
Most of the photographs can be bought after the show or printed to order.
The exhibition runs from 30 June to 15 July and is open every day from 10am to 5pm. Free entry.
With acres of valuable habitat for birds and other wildlife, there is always something to see at Waters’ Edge.
Common terns are nesting in the country park for the first time in its history.
A nesting site was built there some years ago and floats on the large pond, away from land-based predators.
This is the first year the visiting terns have nested on the site.
The nest is hard to see from the banks of the pond so a camera has been set up for people can see the chicks on the monitors in the visitor centre.
There are also ducklings, goslings and cygnets to see – along with a pigeon and a duck who have figured out how to open the centre’s automated doors.
Cllr Liz Redfern, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“Ian’s previous exhibitions at Waters’ Edge have been very popular and Racing: Land and Sea promises to be just as spectacular.
“Coming up next month at Waters Edge is the hugely popular Wildlife Day, with activities and exhibitions form lots of nature groups including Willow Falconry, Lincolnshire Badger Group, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and many more.
“It takes place on Sunday 22 July. Look out for more details coming soon, it promises to be well worth a visit.”
