This is the pond on Martin Green's farm near Sixpenny Handley, where we should have been on Thursday. Go to our Field Trips page for what we might have seen - and which you may well see if you go out walking on Cranborne Chase.
The new page banner pic is of course Abby Eaton's of the Hobby - seems appropriate for what's supposed to be fast news!
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
Every photograph is captioned where necessary: in the 'galleries' please click once both to open and to view this, and including the photographer unless it's one of mine. You can scroll through all the photos in a 'gallery', too. Those including 'BC' are with kind permission of Butterfly-conservation.org.
