On arriving at our campsite at Stukey my not happened for ages gout decided this was the day to flare up and I spent the rest of the week sun bathing hence nowt was added to the year list...bugger!
One brief trip out to Ticwell to meet up with Lou Cross and family was the best I could muster. Also met up with one of my other old school (birding that is) pals Pete (Mr Bird guide done well for himself what!) Morris who was also at Ticwell with family in tow.
Goose fest at Ticwell

As luck had it I actually managed a butterfly tick whilst not actually butterflying with that most mysterious thing called Wall or to give it its old name Hedge Brown.
and nearby a stunning Red Admiral
this little fellow though was not a welcome find, I think its a Wood Mouse
