A couple of years ago I found a Ramshorn snail and decided to photograph it. I looked closer and I could see some white worm like creatures crawling over it. I struggled to work out what they were, but I recently asked around and was told by a member of the Wild about Britain forum…
Some photos from a snowy Wat Tyler Country Park. Boardwalk Saltmarsh Statues And some birds at the feeders: Dunnock Robin

Back in May I had one day where I got some shots of orange tip butterflies Anthocharis cardamines. There were a few males around. And a female reacted positively to interest from one male.
