Having told Carole that, 'how I Exercise is as important as what I Eat when it comes to losing a bit of weight', I thought I'd better practice what I preach and went for a dusk walk around the Ampthill area.
Lots of Chafers were blundering about just above the tree-tops and a male Kestrel was catching them in mid-flight just a few metres away from where I was standing. The pitiful scream of a rabbit signalled its demise...almost certainly supper for one of the local stoats. A heron was calling close by.
I stopped off at a Badger sett that I'd discovered a few months ago to see if there was any sign of activity. Within a couple of minutes the familiar white blaze appeared as a large Badger left its home and trundled up the hill, returning about 10 minutes later.
There were lots of moths flying about as I made my way home. I've left the trap over The Firs Lower School this evening. Hopefully there'll be lots of exciting moths to show the children in the morning.
