A week relaxing in Cornwall to re-charge the batteries.
Some birding, some butterflies and some plants. No “heavy stuff” but nevertheless pleasant to see “Cornish” Chough, Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, a few new plants and stunning views of Common Dolphin in Coverack Bay for a couple of hours on the 29th May 2011. Other butterflies were Painted Lady; Red Admiral; Meadow Brown, Large Skipper and Wall were all year ticks. New plants were Dropwort; Red Broomrape and Hairy Tare. A new Beetle – Oedemera nobilis – Thick-legged Flower Beetle.
