A few images from my wanderings over recent days.
A recent visit to Wales for Bog Orchid was a bit of a disaster as we struggled to find any at two reliable sites. Managed a few other plants though, including Round-leaved Sundew, Bog Asphodel and Marsh St.John’s-wort.
A family of Whinchat, a year tick, and a few Red Kites, Common Buzzard and Raven. A few Small Pearl-Bordered Fritillary, a Black Darter and a Small Heath.
A few trips to my local patch at Staunton Harold Reservoir recently has produced two good Gull year ticks. An adult Caspian Gull on the 18th July and a moulting adult Yellow-legged Gull on 22nd July. Also Common Tern numbers building up with 15 on 22nd July along with 4 Little Egret, a Little Ringed Plover and an Oystercatcher.
