Sunday 14th September

Not much doing today....a very quick wander around the east and west scrub at New Hythe just obscured views of a Water Vole, a Common Lizard, 2 Slow Worm to show for it. Later in the day up to Holly Hill for half an hour. Foolishly I'd left my camera at home so no pics. A few butterflies despite it being late PM - Small Heath, a female Common Blue and Small White. I looked for Adder in my usual spot here but again nothing (well 7 Slow Worm!) Also up here a Nuthatch and Green Woodpecker.

Around home today there was definitely some bird movement - 20+ Mistle Thrush, a few Coal Tits, and small flocks of Greenfinch and Goldfinch as well as small parties of Swallow were all passing through.

Found your blog through google alerts. Just nice to meet someone who is as passionate about wildlife as I am.

Congratulations on the Slow Worm, they are always a treat to see. Well done.
The last time I saw a Water Vole was a couple of months back on a Geography trip to Lathkill Dale, it was soon scared off when everyone started screaming.

"Not much...well, 7 slow worms" ! You are spoilt, young Steve. :-)

Glad to hear you're still seeing water voles.
