RLP and Butterbur

 I reckon this is the same Red-legged Partridge that has popped up from time to time on Orcombe. I heard it just the once last year and this is my first sighting in 2021.

Two migrant Fieldfares paused briefly on Orcombe, first thing yesterday morning. The only other species recorded were 1 Snipe, 1 Curlew and 1 Grey Wagtail, but there was a definite sense that things were moving, with a quick look off Mudbank revealing at least 14 Meadow Pipits, moving upriver, and 12 Teal.

Really pleased to find my first Butterbur this afternoon - a really unusual flower and not one I was really expecting, or searching for.
