Presumed Vagrant Emperor

Churston Cove Brixham Devon 3/4/2017. Sorry no photos. What else could a large Hawker type be at this time of year considering there has been several in Cornwall and masses in north-west Africa?

Morte Point

1030 -1130 1st April I watched this shrew carrying nesting material to a large hole beneath a slab of rock. This hole has been used by Adders over the years so the prospects of breeding success are probably not great!

South Milton, Thurlestone

A lovely walk in the sun along the reed bed at South Milton produced quite a few butterflies on the wing. Plenty of Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, Small White and a Comma basking in the sun outside the ringing hut.
