Postcard from the Isle of Wight

Red squirrel at Alverstone

 Common Blues (above and below)

  Chalk Hill Blue - a first for me!

Small Copper

Painted Lady


 I think these are Wall Lizards

  Common Shrew which came into the farm shop and had a nosey round.

I can really recommend the Isle of Wight if you love wildlife. Lots of quiet, well-maintained public footpaths where you can go walking and taking photos - and of course no mink or grey squirrels which means that vulnerable species can thrive!
