I have been busy in the last week, some small mammal trapping and some bat catching locally. Pygmy and common shrews, bank and field voles, wood mouse, soprano and common pipistrelle and brown long eared bat.
About 70 Red Deer including one huge-antlered mega-stag among about a dozen prime adult males at Ober Common in the New Forest on 27th. Unfortunately after Clare and I had made a suitably circumspect approach to the opposite side of the bog inside the treeline, some dimwit with a big Sigma over his shoulder on a monopod came traipsing along right in the open and flushed the whole lot back into the woods. I really hope he hadn't got the pictures he wanted. I'll put up some of my results when I've worked through them: good records rather than proper portraits.
Common Seal in the harbour from Farlington Marshes seawall yesterday was a nice surprise.
