Common Redshank.

 A Common Redshank (Tringa totanus) photographed searching the mud at Church Norton.

Just one of the 76 species I logged as seen or heard during a recent trip to Pagham Harbour.  FAB.

Who's Watching Who?

An image taken in late July that reminds me that I need to find some time to revisit the park to check out the Red Deer activity.

Transect Update

With the butterfly recording season nearly at at end for this year the only species seen during my last three weekly transect walks was the Speckled Wood but typically the highest numbers recorded (30 individuals) throughout the shaded woodland areas.

Speckled Wood.

The other main occurrence has been the emergence of the Parasol fungi in the open woodland pasture. The egg shaped young caps quickly expand and flatten revealing a a large central umbro.

During my most recent walk I was treated to a decent albeit brief view of a female Kestrel perched atop a bare birch tree as she scanned the undergrowth before departing over the woodland canopy.

Wildlife watching and blogging has taken a back seat recently and this will be the case over the next few weeks as we continue to prepare for a fairly major revamp of our heating system at home and I crack on with the ongoing redecoration's.  FAB.
