First of all we set up the tent but we had to do it quickly because a rain shower was about to fall! Luckily we had help from Mark and Len!

Once we set up the tent we had a look around in the big white gazebo and there were Slow worms and Lizards and a spot for bird ringing.
|Here I am with a Slow worm|
The reason why they do it is because when it flies free and other ringers catch it in the nets, then they would look up the number on the metal ring to find out more about where the bird has come from.
It was nice to see different birds up close that usually just fly away when you get close to them. Up close I saw: a Song Thrush, a Garden Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Blackbird, Greenfinch, Long tailed tit and others I can't remember right now.
Here are some pics:

When the sun was starting to fall, the sunset was just the best!
|just beautiful - do you agree?|
|too cold, many layers!|
|biggest and hottest ever!|
On Saturday saw all sorts of different species of different types of wildlife. I found a common lizard and a few Slow worms:
