Oblong-leaved Sundew


Oblong-leaved Sundew - chuffed to finally find this today. The leaves are more spoon-shaped compared to Round-leaved - see below.
 
Just 45 Swift noted (over west) on Orcombe Point early this morning, with 5 Sandwich Tern offshore. Otherwise an afternoon mooch on the commons was, as always, filled with interest, mostly plants at the moment although a Marsh Tit at the top end of Squabmoor Reservoir was the first I've had on the commons for years, and tantalisingly close to the Exmouth boundary too!


Round-leaved Sundew
 
 
Nearly open Sundew flowers.


Beautiful Demoiselle - female.


Keeled Skimmer - male.


Lesser Spearwort (above and below).



Pale Butterwort - another carnivorous plant of acid bogs.
 

Grayling - masters of camouflage!


Slender St John's Wort


Hemp Agrimony




Rush species - abundant and low to the ground.


Thistle species - not sure about this one.



Common Cudweed
