Well it looks like Blogger has calmed down, so I'll do another post while the goings good. The dashboard still gives me the occasional 'no blogs following', but a quick hit on the refresh button a couple of times usually sorts that one out.
An over the shoulder glance from a Kestrel, ready for a take off over the rocks at the Great Orme.
A Chough that did launch.
An interesting plant this. (to me, anyway). Like a miniature Foxglove, but with different shaped leaves. Even grows in the cracks of a wall. Navelwort.
Another interesting plant. A common one. It has an inflated calyx that becomes brown and inflated in 'fruit', (that's the fat bit behind the yellow flowers), and the seeds rattle inside; hence the name, Yellow Rattle.
I try and make a point of not doing 'captive' birds on here, but I must admit to having a liking for this particular shot.
A Flamingo from a visit to Martin Mere.
A summer visiting male Scaup, that was visiting RSPB Conwy when I popped in one day. Usually a rare winter visitor to our shores. Perhaps he's like me, and enjoys it there.
A Crow that has managed to acquire an egg for breakfast. My guess is a Mallards egg.
Usually this bird is associated with thieving. The much maligned, by some, 'thieving' Magpie. This one has a lot to learn yet though; a juvenile.
On a hot sunny day, it's not just dragons, damsels and butterflies on the wing. There are some beautiful moths about too. A Yellow Shell.
Two more day flying moths to finish on.
Have a good weekend
