My first otter shots :^)

The Water Vole is Britain's fastest declining wild mammal and has disappeared from many parts of the country where it was once common. It is threatened by habitat loss, but has suffered particularly from predation by the introduced American Mink.

Peregrine Falcon

A couple of adders from Essex, I've been working at a location where new homes are being built. So far over 100 adders have been moved to safety and away from the building work.

Purple Hairstreak seen at Wanstead Park, not a great shot but I was happy just to use my macro lens as this little butterfly is usually seen at the top of oak trees.

This has to be one of your best posts - unusual for August as most ducks ( I note their absence ) are in a state of eclipse.
