It was a shame that Oliver wasn’t with me when I went for my walk as I did find quite a few species and some such as the Lacrymaria that I hadn’t seen before. Apologies for some really rotten photographs, I thought they looked okay on playback but when I got home they happened to be dreadful and really grainy so I shall have to retrace my steps and take some better ones!
