Along the Railway

Another largely bird-free walk, this time from Castor Mill to Wansford Station and back following the Nene Valley Railway for a lot of the time.

Forest Shieldbug (Pentatoma rufipes) at Water Newton Lock

This young Rat at the picnic area at Wansford Station was extremely bold. One group of diners had barely left before it was out hoovering up the remains.
Brown Rat (Rattus norvegicus)

Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum), female

A popular target for many of the large number of rail enthusiasts along the route: the recently restored steam engine, Mayflower.
