Ian came with me, although at the lake we went our separate ways. I look for birds, butterflies, bugs etc but Ian fidgets and gets very impatient. So he went off with the binoculars while I took both cameras. Meeting at an arranged time at the cafe for a spot of lunch, we both said how very disappointed not to see more in the way of wildlife. Not sure what to expect but there was nothing we hadn't already seen on the canals. Apart from a few Butterflies and Orchids, the odd bird or two, spiders and Toadlets, that was it. Probably just the wrong time of the year so I expect another visit on our return in October will be on the cards.

|Not sure if this is a Hobby as they have been seen by the lake.|
