A sunny Sunday on Cooper's Hill. (30th March)

This spider-hunting wasp (probably Anoplius viaticus) was searching through the heather...


A Small Tortoiseshell was feeding on sap oozing from the stump of a silver birch felled last Tuesday during a work-party...


No Green Tiger beetles were seen on Tuesday, but there were plenty there today...



A Common Lizard was basking beneath heather. Stealth allowed a close approach...



This tiny spider (only a few mms log) was crawling on a conifer trunk...
