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
