Last weekend headed down to West Pentire near Crantock in Cornwall, first time i'd been here,beautiful fields full of flowers,red Poppies & yellow Corn Marigolds leading down to the sea.. It was quite windy so very few butterflies or other buglife on the wing but a lovely place and a revisit is definitely planned.

Adult ChoughWe spent last weekend in the Bongo ( a cross between a camper van & a tent ) on the Lizard ,which was a nice break in lovely surroundings, the weather was against us but we were,nt going to let that stop us. The Choughs on the point had actually fledged that day and one of the youngsters was in view on the cliffs for a brief moment on what could have been its first outing. The parents were coming and going every half an hour or so giving great views as they flew overhead.

On the walk back to the car I stopped to try and get a photo of a Whitethroat feeding its young,they were pretty obliging.(Whitethroats seem to be getting commoner every summer)

A day out with Rat & Carol to Somerset. Shapwich Heath and Ham Walls seem to be the places to visit to look for Hobbies,Bitterns ,Egrets (including Great White) and lots of other goodies.No wonder Hobbies like this site so much ,I have never seen so many Dragonflys,mostly Four Spotted Chasers. Our visit coincided with a visit of a female Red Footed Falcon,and although I met Derek and Colin from Wadebridge who had seen and managed a few photos, we only got a possible fleeting glimpse,so it still remains my bogie bird. But good views of Bitterns and more trips planned for the future.
