Since the last blog we have found many more Bee Orchids, and other people have also found some in different areas, it appears to be a very good year for Bee Orchids.
We came across an Oystercatcher on the path alongside the long pond, after two or three attempts at poking it’s long beak in the ground, success! a very long earthworm, see photo.
This year there are a lot of Skylarks, and normally they can be often seen feeding their young but upto present haven’t managed to catch them on camera, but did manage and adult, see photo.
Also this year the Greylag geese moved in, with six pairs hatching 27 young between them, and with predation that number has now been halved. Phil Reed has taken some photos, see attached.
