Claire is doing a lot of jogging lately in training for a charity run, and the boys don't need asking twice to go for a bike ride, so we hit Wareham Forest today where the wide open tracks are good for both. And sand lizards. This small one was basking just off the track. We saw a large, bright green male later but it moved too fast to photograph. Butterflies were also on the wing - Orange Tip, Brimstone, Speckled Wood and Small Copper the most noticeable.
Buzzard - carrying a small snake or maybe a slow worm?

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
