Wat tyler - birds and herps
Tuesday, May 12, 2009 9:32:00 PM
And my first turtle dove of 2009
And from the 1st May: My first blue tailed Damselfly of 2009(ok, damselflies if you look closely at the top left)
A juvenile smooth newt
A common lizard, my first for the site
These wern't the only herps seen that day. An adder was slithering along the path among the visiting school girls (you can imagine the scene) but disappeared into the disabled toliet before I could get a photo! It was moved somewhere safe shortly after but in a bang, so no photo.
Finally a whitethroat that was calling from a bush by the path
