Early Forget-me-not

Early Forget-me-not - The Maer - this beautiful little flower is absolutely tiny - just a couple of millimetres across. You'd probably never notice it if you weren't intentionally looking for it, but its intense blue colour helps with locating it.

A quick dawn whiz around Orcombe was disappointingly quiet, with a flyover Yellowhammer the highlight. Just 5 Chiffchaffs, a couple Blackcaps and a handful of Meadow Pipits otherwise. 
Yesterday evening was a little better with 3 White Wagtails and a Wheatear the pick of the bunch, although an ultra-brief fly-through hirundine would have been the star if I'd been able to confirm it as my first Swallow of the year!

Raven - Orcombe Point.
