In the meantime, because no blog post is complete without at least one lovely picture, the following have been sent in by visitors over the last few weeks but not yet made it into the blog and this seems a suitable place to belatedly post them!

Thanks to Caroline Herbert for the great white egrets and David Stanley-Ward for the peregrine:
