Female Brambling. One of at least two (I just missed getting a photo of a stunning male) in with a flock of c50+ Chaffinches. The flock was seen whilst I was doing some survey work on the edge of Ludwell Valley Park, Exeter.
Mudbank today - c500 Brent Geese early morning, 1 female Goldeneye and 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls. Great to see Paul Gosling today.
Nearby, on Orcombe Point, 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls, c400+ Black-headed Gulls, 5 Snipe and 2 Stonechats.
I probably should know what this is but I'm not sure I've seen it before. Masses growing in an arable field. A Swinecress type thing?
