Slow Worm stuff

Highlight yesterday was finding 3 young slow worms in the garden. Pix a bit rubbish because i had to run to get the camera which was in the house. You can see how small this is by the woodlouse sp to the left of its head. This was in the same area as Louise found an adult in April and I found one last year. The picture doesn't do it justice it was a beautiful metallic pale, golden colour. I should probably put some more cover down here for them, although it is near the road unfortunately.

Scaling Dam produced Cuckoo x2, Garden Warbler x2, LRPs and a Whimbrel. There are still a pair of Wigeon and Teal but the Goldeneye appear to have left.

Hopefully we should be able to find you one.
