26 September 2013 - Blue Town, Isle of Sheppey

Took some colleagues last night to the Isle of Sheppey to locate and photograph the Yellow-tailed Scorpions which have collonised the harbour since pre-1870. Took a UV hand-torch which had been purchased by Santa last Christmas for me... This equipment proved essential kit as with a normal torch it was impossible to locate the little rascals. A twenty minute search covering about 80 metres of harbour wall yielded about 20 scorpions and nearly as many weird looks from the locals getting trollied in the nearby pub...!
