A little taste of summer...

Had an excellent morning out with Dave Helliar and Andy Grinter in Dorset yesterday. A visit to Wareham produced a ring-tail hen harrier and a couple of lovely Woodlarks. Though we never saw them particularly close they fed in the open and showed very well.

Showing somewhat better were these stunning Sand Lizards though - four in total. Again, this is where a bridge camera with a good zoom comes into its own...

...and an adder basking in the sunshine. Unfortunately I didn't notice the dead heather lying across its snout at the time.
