Here are some recent spots from ANR
A toad trying to blend into the background on the Trent-side path.
I was attracted to this buddleia by its striking mauve colour, as also was this red admiral.
I have often tried to get a ariel shot of a sand martin approaching the artificial nesting bank without much success. This one is quite blurred but you can just about see it has a good beak-full of flying insects to feed its brood.
Hopefully I shall have some pictures from the Isle of Man to share soon.
