I'm just back from a few days working in the Netherlands: not much time or opportunity for birding/mammals but on the ferry after leaving Harwich I had a Noctule Bat circle the boat three times in broad daylight, and at the mouth of the River Maas I saw 6+ Harbour Porpoises.

Went butterflying at Bentley Wood in deepest Hampshire this morning and spent about ten minutes entranced as a Bank Vole clambered about in a tangle of bramble and birch, at one point getting about ten feet above the ground. It was perfectly capable in the twigs and branches, recovering onto one after slipping round to hang underneath it and otherwise running about quite happily.

Butterfly-wise it was a decent trip as well, with slightly faded Pearl-bordered Fritillaries being upstaged by spanking fresh Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries, and a very unexpected bonus Grizzled Skipper. Quite a few Hornets around.....
