Don't forget that Les Butler has of course been active in my absence and has some lovely photographs on his Walks With My Camera blog, which include some photos of the children's contribution to the Stave Hill Open Day and some Flash Earth images of the area. He too has some doubts about the recent work in some parts of the ecological park.
Mike Scott has also been busy on his blog, drplokta's Photostream. There are some stunning photographs of insects - particultarly the dragonflies, and there's a lovely photo of a set of mallard chicks huddling together. I am very envious that he has managed to capture a very clear photograph of a fox in the Russia Dock Woodland. Whenever I see foxes they are alway on the move - like lightning. Mike's photographs on the Flickr website are now organized by most recent date first, so it is very easy to get a view of how things change over time.
