With yesterday seeing such an impressive turn around in the weather, from 50mph winds down to almost flat calm (emphasis on almost), it seemed only right to head straight for the warm, south facing chalk slopes of Denbies Hillside - a gem of a reserve in the Surrey countryside.

It wasn't so much a trip to find wildlife as more of an opportunity to get out from the indoors and into the sun for the first time in two days, but being chalk downland in the heart of the North Downs, there was plenty of stuff to catch the eye.
