Quiet Again

Whinchat - one of two in the Dung Fields yesterday evening, taking the autumn tally to 4! Orcombe is not a migration hotspot! So far this autumn - not a single Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Grasshopper Warbler or Lesser Whitethroat. I did get the first Stonechat of the autumn though, and 6 Wheatear were also logged.

Feathered Ranunculus


Scarce Bordered Straw - the second trapped this summer.

Spindle Knot-horn nephopteryx angustella

Starling - not a common sight on Orcombe though we do get the odd flock going over later on in the autumn. This was one of a group of about 30 birds feeding on blackberries in Sandy Bay Caravan Park, on the very edge of the patch boundary.
