Butterflies at last

Butterflies at last.  Went to Exeter to see 19240 Shrouds of the Somme, it made me cry and one word only "Why".  Contrasted with a walk from Lympstone to Exmouth with butterflies flying free in the sun, Meadow Browns, Small White, Comma and two Marbled White  ( too fast for the camera) seen, plus plenty of House Sparrows.

Habitat Morte Point

The Gorse on Morte Point seems not to have flowered this year possibly resulting in fewer insects and therefore fewer insect eating birds. Is this general throughout Devon or just on Morte Point?

Morte Point 1 May 2013Same location 06072016

Eds. The photos are taken 2 months apart. Common (European) Gorse can flower anytime of year but peaks in April, closer to when the first photo was taken, which might be a factor.

Grey Seal in the River Dart at Totnes

Went to the South Devon Railway yesterday and as I was going back to Totnes Mainline Station noticed a Grey Seal in the River Dart near to where the Paddington/Penzance line crosses the Dart. It was about high tide so it could well of followed the fish up river. First time I have seen one so far inland.
