Found another nice male Orangetip which brightened up the day.

24 April 2008 The Lakes, Larkfield
A short walk after work to clear my head of work and to have a walk, produced a confiding Nightingale singing its nackers off. So many walkers passed by, completely missing this treasure of their local country park. Oh well.

23 April 2008 The Watercress Beds, East Malling
To build up a thirst, that brief bit of activity between ending work and entering the King & Queen Public House, the good lady Wiff and I partook of a short walk to the watercress beds. Upon arrival, a quick glimpse and a brief scurry had me thinking that the local Water Voles were up to their old tricks again. After tracking one beast, a bit more hope: a bit more patience and I was nearly eyeball to eyeball; nose to snout with a very confiding Water Vole.
The return walk back to the pub (er car I think I meant) produced a rather lethargic looking Water Shrew. Clearly one of the lazier specimens of the species, this specimen took no notice of us as we stomped by. Had it been a bit more awake it would of been a new mammal tick for me but I am determined not to tick sleeping individuals.
