I took the girls on a trip to mid bucks and Dancers End Nature Reserve in the Chilterns. The aim was to help Hilary and Miles check the 20 bat boxes. Alas, the boxes were devoid of any bats or even droppings. But one held a couple of Edible Dormice or Glis Glis, a few record shots attached. A new mammal for me and one happily added to my 2010 mammal total which now stands at 32 for England and 24 for Bucks. A very pleasant morning and a cracking site for insects and plants - just a shame about the bats.
