More from the new kit

The Safari didn't get much on Patch 2 this morning but lunchtime was better; again nothing much was happening until a few Gannets found a shoal of fish and a few soon became about 50 or so. Pity it was distant in the wibbly-wobbly there was plenty of diving action going on.
Our children's group had a good session in the pond removing about another 40 3-spined Sticklebacks including a fully coloured male which was looking too chipper.
Good numbers of Front Swimming Water Boatmen were captured and a single Back Swimmer. Other goodies included the first Bloodworm for a long time and three Blue Tailed Damselfly nymphs.
No one saw the Frog that has been dumped in there but the unwanted Goldfish was spotted but not netted - a cunning plan is going to required for that beast we think.
After work we had a short errand which enabled us to have a few minutes on the dunes on the way back to Base Camp.
Dewberries - yum well tasty
Dune Helleborine going to seed
Another Grayling just for Warren over on Pittswood Patch
Wild Pansy
Where to next? More Patch 2 tomorrow and maybe something more not sure yet.
In the meantime let us know what's lurking in the vegetation in your outback.

I didn't realise we get Graylings locally, I've only seen them up @ Whitbarrow.
