    Sadly I wasn't able to get to this in the end (working today, as it transpired). Glad to hear that the weather was good for you though.

    Great day today, a special thanks to Mike for putting James & I up for the night. A couple of pics...

    I would also like to thank Mike for arranging the Brownsea meet again and for putting some of the members up.
    A great day was had by all and we were blessed with good weather, which was a huge relief after the wet summer we have had this year.
    It was a pleasure to meet some more new faces and I look forward to the next wildlife hunting adventure. :)

    Some brilliant photos there.

    My two favourites would be the Ninja Squirrel

    I also agree with Fen, and the Ninja Squirrel was voted by all of us as being the shot of the day :)

    I'd also like to add my thanks to Mike for organising the trip. It was great to put faces to names.

    And just to show there's more to Brownsea than squirrels, bugs and tractors (Though Colin did demonstrate his considerable knowledge of the latter when talking to a passing member of the public while waiting for the reds to put in an appearance :))

    It was a great day on Brownsea yesterday, many thanks to Mike for organising and to Colin for giving me a lift. There's some excellent photos posted, I love James' ninja squirrel and the tractor. Here's a handful of mine:

    I'd just like to add, that in James' photo #2, I am NOT 'Scouting for Boys'. :D
