Away from the Ock...

Due to volcanic problems the proposed whale spotting in Iceland was changed to a week in the Tamar Valley in Cornwall.
Despite the lack of whales there was still plenty of wildlife to be seen - dippers at golitha falls; skylarks singing over bodmin moor and puffins off the coast near padstow.  Actually 15% of the puffin population of 'puffin island' can be seen in this photograph.
Now back to Oxfordshire and reality - more water vole surveys, bumblebee surveys, himalayan balsam clearance (it's that time of year - again) and maybe further investigation into the otters.
