A Dip On The Downs.

Walked the ridgeway and white horse hill surrounds today in a rather ferocious wind. There were Skylarks a'plenty and some seven or so Corn Buntings. A lot of the commoner birds such as Wren, Goldfinch and Linnet were in evidence but the bird that really caught my eye was a Meadow Pipit one of about six, but this particular bird was taking a bath in a puddle on the ridgeway and apparently thoroughly enjoying it.
The Oxon Feather.

Fly looking like Old Glory with its stars and stripes

Holly Blue

Orange Tip female I saw dozens of males but with their bouncy flight couldn't snap one
