WW and Early Purple Orchid

My first Willow Warbler this afternoon, after work, on Orcombe Point.

Couldn't get out 'til after work but a few migrants on Orcombe this afternoon - Willow Warbler, 2 Wheatears, 1 White Wagtail, c20+ Linnet, 5 Swallows, 5 Chiffchaffs, 3 Sand Martins and 2 Blackcaps.
A quick look off Shelly Beach revealed 9 Dark-bellied Brent Geese and 4 Pale-bellied Brent Geese.

Just one Early Purple Orchid in flower, but several basal rosettes found in local woodland.

Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage

Closer views of a White Wagtail this afternoon.

Lady's Smock - also known as Cuckooflower - Orange-tip foodplant.
