For a while now we've been getting badgers in the garden.  I didn't really realise they were coming pretty much every night.  Tonight I spotted two fairly early on, so took a few photos of one of them.  Used a torch for illumination - they didn't seem to be bothered by it at all.

Finally managed to track down a Purple Emperor in the woods today.  A little tatty, so I photographed his good side.

Also, a couple more Purple Hairstreak photos from earlier in the week.

Out in the woods this afternoon looking for Purple Emperors.  No luck, but did see a Purple Hairstreak - about 2 weeks earlier than one would normally expect to start see them.

A brief trip to Salisbury Cathedral yesterday morning to see the Peregrines.  Two of the 4 youngsters flying about a bit, and one of the adults bringing in food.

Two yound Great Spotted Woodpeckers now appearing regularly in our garden, along with both parents.  Some photos from yesterday evening.
