This afternoon I met Jo, one of my local Countryside Rangers, up on my patch to talk about a Nightjar walk I am helping with this coming Wednesday (17th).
It was really sunny and warm and a lovely day to be out and about and once we'd finished chatting I made the most of it and spent ages wandering round my patch, checking some reptile tins, making a note of the birds I saw/heard and using my phone to take some photos.
The highlights of my walk were watching an adult Robin get pestered for food by a juvenile, seeing a couple of sunbathing Lizards and butterflies on the boardwalk and enjoying the wildflower meadow which is just off the path I walked home on.
Here are my favourite photos from this afternoon (there's more text below the pics btw):
