July 2016

July was a quiet month. I bought a camera trap that continued to capture animals in Tuscany in my absence, including more wild boar and a crested porcupine.

I saw a woodcock flying at dusk close to Woodchester Mansion on 20th, and a peregrine flew over Tyndall Avenue on 27th.

I hosted the Srinivasulu family from Osmania University, India, and we visited Slimbridge on 2nd.
