It's been a good week for books. I ordered all of these weeks/months ago, but they all arrived within the last week.

I pre-ordered Geoffrey Kibby's book because I already had Volume 1 so I knew how good it would be. Now I just have to wait for Volume 3 to be published to complete the set!

Red Sixty Seven is a BTO and RSPB fundraiser which features a collection of superb illustrations by 67 different artists, based on the Red List of endangered birds. It had sold out so I had to wait for the second print run to arrive. Get your copy here: www.bto.org/our-science/publications/bto-books-and-guides....

The caterpillar book was a gamble but I went for it because there is nothing else like it - and Richard Lewington's name is a guarantee of quality!

All three are highly recommended!

I watched this grey heron catch half a dozen newts in just a few minutes.

The herons are reasonably visible at the Swell Wood heronry, but when you try to photograph them you realise it's a bit of a twigfest!

For just a few minutes there was a super-bright rainbow at Catcott Lows.

By the way if you're thinking my 5D4 has got a bit noisy - that's rain!
