Admirable Admiral and Name that Bird.

Had a walk along the Ridgeway today and noted Yellowhammer,Warbler looked like a Whitethroat, Sparrowhawk, 3 Kestrels, 3 Linnet, 8 Goldfinch, 12 Chaffinch, 4 Stock Doves, 2 Buzzard and many Wood Pigeon & Corvids. The plants were represented by a nice stand of Tansy, Meadow Cranesbill, and Field Scabious. The insects turned up with an impressive Red Admiral.


Meadow Cranesbill

Field Scabious - on right

Red Admiral blow up the picture and see those eyes

Name that bird.
It was rather muggy and the thunder bugs were most uncomfortable.

  1. Yeah! it's that bad with no comments i've decided to talk to myself. "Hot today isn't it camboy? Yep sure is, tell me camboy how does the hot weather affect you ? Well when its like this I tend to run round in circles saying things like Who says my dads mad and when's a gnome not a gnome - oh! you don't know the answer to that one, well i've heard it's when he's in Cornwall when he becomes a Troll, but of course you might know a different answer.
    Aaaahh here comes those nice men wearing the white coats - yes folks you guessed right it's Geoff & Roy.
