Mainly Shellingford Quarry

In a busy day chasing about after other people managed to call in at the Quarry late on and disturbed a flock of about thirty Mallard, also saw a Buzzard close up as it rather lazily flapped by and was scolded by a Whitethroat, the only other birds of note were in excess of one hundred Lapwing in a nearby field.
Plants were represented by Fleabane and Wild Parsnip and insects by Five-Spot and Six-Spot Burnet, also a Black-Tailed Skimmer Dragonfly.
