This day was amazing with nice people and the best teacher:). I know much more species than before 🙂

Congratulations to Swanage Railway - this is the first day of passenger trains running from Wareham. We have been involved in helping to get this massive project off the ground since 2013, conducting surveys and advising on achieving this goal whilst being sensitive to the wildlife and internationally designated heathland sites that the newly opened section of line runs through or next to. Its been a really interesting project, with lots of hard work and dedication from the team at Swanage Railway! It was a pleasure to be a part of it! Here are some photos of the new train rolling into Swanage station.

Lindsay came across this unusual newt whilst leading Acorn Ecology's great crested newt training course earlier this month. It's a leucistic (a bit like albino but without red eyes) smooth or palmate newt which didn't go through full metamorphosis last year and over-wintered in the pond, retaining its larval features (known as being neotenous) such as the rather splendid red gills. A really interesting find - a first for Lindsay in 16 years of conducting surveys for newts. Thank you to Chris Gleed-Owens and ARC for their input into identification, and thanks to Colin Bonfield of Acorn Ecology for the photos which were much better than mine! ... See MoreSee Less
