Ratty feasts on autumn berries

Loitered around near an unremarkable ditch at Far Ings Nature Reserve in Lincolnshire - a good spot for water voles - and was rewarded with the sight of this 'Ratty' feasting on the ripe hawthorn berries that had dropped into the water from the hedgerow above.

What a great team:-)

Well, here's the inevitable group photo on the last day, when the sunshine and blue skies returned to wave us off.
Back row (left-to-right): Melissa, James, Pat, Elisa, Sophia, Bella, Chris.
Hovering half-way!: Mina.
Kneeling: Julia, Ann, Andrew, Christina (with Lycos), Diane.

Also another picture of Lycos - group mascot and expert porcupine-finder (although said porcupine waddled off before I could get a photo of it). Many thanks to all the group for being such great company for two weeks, and special thanks to my room mate Sophia for joining me on most of my early morning walks and sleeping through (or at least politely ignoring) my early rises the rest of the time:-)
