Glimpses into nature

Introduction

This is simply intended to be an irregular note of newsworthy happenings, as much for my own records as anything else although I hope, of course, that something might be of interest to others.

I'm launching with a few historic records and one or two more up to date. Records are from my home patch Winswell Water, Devon, UK unless otherwise stated.
