The Eider appear to be having a poor year, on the way to check the Natterjack ponds, we spotted a group of 8 female and 1 male Eider duck on the channel but only one lonely duckling.
At the pond there were a group of 10 Smooth? newts, see photo of one.
Finally managed a shot of a Four Spot chaser this year and also a Common Blue butterfly.
