The one thing I've got round here that I am keen to photograph is a stoat. I've seen running through the orchard and amongst the wood piles, bit yet to work out its habits to work with.
I don't think the Badger is showing symptoms of having TB, from all the various experts I've spoken too, they all suggest its from malnutrition.
The next month is vital to see if last year was damaging to the small colony of Duke of Burgundy butterflies that are on the site i survey.
The species is in rapid decline as they tend to form colonies of only a dozen. They appear from late April, peak in the two middle weeks in May and die off by the first week in june(in the north they appear generally and peak two weeks later). Food plants here seem to be delayed, hopefully the duke will be delayed also as its vital for them.
The images and videos were taken east of the Quantocks, the adder was seen and photographed at the butterfly conservation site south of Taunton in the Blackdown hills.
