On Thursday I did my Mill Hill butterfly transect: 32 Adonis Blue, 1 Clouded Yellow, 30 Common Blue, 1 Gatekeeper, 2 Green-veined White, 50 Meadow Brown, 6 Small Heath. A pair of Kestrels hunted at the top of the hill, repeatedly landing on the ground. A series of aerial photos shows one eating on the wing.
On Friday during a visit to Arundel WWT I saw 3 Water Voles, two of which were seen during a boat trip of the wetland area.
On Saturday afternoon I took photos of a SusSAR First Aid Course for Richard, the instructor:
On Sunday I attended a club metal detecting dig and found some buckles, a possible ancient farthing and an 1861 halfpenny.
