Home sweet home
An early morning visit to St Mary's was as far as I ventured out today. The reported Garganey was long gone but picked up a Little Grebe for a patch tick for the year. Back at the ranch I had a play with my new toy, a Canon 7D camera. Here's some of the mugshots taken in my garden.
Exactly a week ago I estimated another 25 days till the frog spawn
would become tadpoles. Wrong! The warm weather has speeded things up.

A Lace webbed spider (Amaurobius similis) 'lurking' in the shed.
