Red Kites were, of course, a feature of our day in the Chilterns, but we also logged a couple Garden Warblers, Lesser Whitethroat, 2 or 3 Sedge Warblers, 3 or 4 Marsh Tits (family group) and a singing Corn Bunting (from the car).
Bastard Toadflax - expertly located by Kev, but sadly not yet in flower...
Small Heath on Changing Forget-me-not - Hartslock.

Monkey x Lady Orchid hybrid. Apparently the only place in the UK where this combination occurs.
