Whinchat and Deptford Pink


Juvenile Whinchat - Orcombe Point. Used to seeing first-winters a bit later on in the summer but this is the earliest Whinchat I've had on Orcombe by some distance. It looks like it hasn't long fledged so has presumably made just a short flight from Dartmoor.
 

Juvenile Willow Warbler - Orcombe Point. A gorgeous lemony one.
 
 
The beautiful, rare and famous Deptford Pink - Buckfastleigh.
 

Sea Rocket - Sandy Bay


Common Restharrow - Sandy Bay


Blue Water-Speedwell - Clyst St Mary

 
Branched Bur-reed - Clyst St Mary. How on earth have I not noticed this spectacular species before?
 
 
 
White Mullein - Lympstone - thanks to Kev for the info on this roadside beauty.
 
 
Green Tiger Beetle - Sandy Bay
 

Unidentified. Initially thought this was Bird's-foot Trefoil but the leaves don't look anywhere near right - Sandy Bay.


Prickly Saltwort - Sandy Bay


Sea Beet - Sandy Bay
