Wood of Cree RSPB - 23.9.10

The weather was still on the dull side today but dry in the morning so we headed for the Wood of Cree RSPB.  We had lunch sitting in the car park as it was very heavy rain.  About 1.00pm we took advantage of a dry spell and gathered up our equipment and went on the woodland trail.  There were an awful lot of Dor beetles beetling around – quite a few on their backs which I aided to their feet.  We also found a full size Common Toad this time and managed to get a few pictures.

Suddenly the heavens opened and the rain started bucketing.  I had taken the precaution of carrying the large umbrella with us to cover all the camera equipment.  We made a quick dash back to the car!
