17th April

Barn Swallow
Common Redpoll
Yellow Archangel

Brean Down: It's days like this that make me glad I've expanded my interests. 1 Cuckoo, 1 Common Redpoll, 1 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Grasshopper Warbler.
On the Redpoll note the cold tones surrounding the ear coverts, lack of warm tones on the flanks eliminating cabaret.

Weston woods moths: Scorched Carpet, Least Black Arches and White-pinion Spotted all NFY


  1. Hi Pabs, Your wild flower is possibly Yellow Archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdolon)
