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!
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
Rush species - abundant and low to the ground.
Thistle species - not sure about this one.
