We didn't go far and although it wasn't the insectfest we had hoped for we still had some nice Damselflies , a couple of Dragonflies and a few other bugs , Birds were quite numerous as well, with good views of a pair of Bullfinch , a couple of Buzzards, a Green woodpecker and distant views of a Grey Heron that I tried my hardest to string into a Stork but photos proved me over optimistic, I also found 3 new Yellowhammer territories which I think brings me to 14 pairs found within 3 miles of the house and I haven't been East of the village yet!
Pictures below of some of the Flora and Fauna we found be warned there are pictures of me in the hat!!
All Pics by me unless otherwise stated!! I have attempted to ID the critters in them ,if you think they are wrong and can be arsed to correct them feel free to let me know!!
