We've been looking for fish today, exploring the stream in the field at the end of our garden. There were no fish to be seen anywhere, but I suspect they saw (and heard) us coming! We did find lots of little shrimpy things though and some very pretty yellow irises.
We also saw lots of very shiny green beetles and an unusual orange ladybird with a white head.
It was a very muddy business!
The sun came out on the way home and we saw a Small Copper butterfly.
