    In the gutter....I loved the way the Red Squirrels use the guttering on the buildings to get around :)

    Great shots Richard. Your first one no doubt is in contest with my squirrel shot, it's excellent.

    I used to like tractors, but now I'm an extractor fan. ;) :D

    Seriously it's an excellent shot James. It sort of reminds me of a Constable painting. The Ninja squirrel made me laugh out loud. Superb. :cool: :cool:

    Thanks for organising this and putting me up Mike....was a fantastic day :D Feels more like we were there 5 minutes than 5 hours it went by that quick!

    Anyway, the long lens didn't last on the camera before I had the close up lens out :D....

    Am sure it was one of these I was photographing on the road but not this one as the one on the road flew away.

    Also found a Lariniodes cornutus (as per my common spiders thread) so you do get them down south too. Sums up the day for me tho....spiders and blue skies :cool:

    As soon as I saw your Ant shot, I started itching all over again....I hate Ants.
    I never got round to trying your gear yesterday Andrew, after our chat and Ant dance session, I went on the Red Squirrel hunt and never got back to you....I will hopefully meet you again and have a go.
    Some very very good shots posted by everyone and nice to hear that a good time had by all. :)

    Aye, look forward to meeting you again too. The day just flew by for me and with all these fancy bugs you have down here I'll no doubt be back again. Been out crawling about in the new forest today and saw a few more things I've never seen before too...am loosing count of the amount of new things I've seen in the last couple of days :D

    Cracking shots all round...love all the squirrel and deer ones. I kinda forgot to look for those :eek: :D

    Godwits, I think the tide seemed to be a bit low so the birds were further away than April

    Pheasant, looks a bit disgruntled for some reason.

    Not sure what type of dragonfly, but there were loads about.

    One of the fields on the southern side of the island, the heather among the grass attracted some butterflies but they were a bit active, hence no decent pic thereof.

    Good set of pics though.

    There's certainly interest in returning, either over winter on one of the DWT trips when the island is closed to the public or around April next year.
