A Darter, a Rail and a Fisher

I know I am no longer officially within the 108ft area, but on Friday I was at Swanwick Lakes interviewing for the new Reserves Officer and hopefully keen 108ft blogger. During a break in proceedings I went down to the Centre Lake in the sunshine and was rewarded with a late common darter basking on one of the handrails.

This is not my latest ever but getting close, it was also not the only interesting bit of wildlife that I saw, there wa sa water rail just beside the path as well. Right at the end of the day we were also rewarded with a kingfisher perched beside the dipping pond.
