This blog follows my travels and bird/wildlife trips, in words (few) and photos (many probably)!
Sunday 24th August 2014
A birding day on the Levels, turned into a Dragonfly and plants day. Birds were few and far between sadly. But for the 3rd time in recent weeks, and after years of trying......another Brown Hawker posed for photos!!! Right by the car too...bit of a tatty male this time though.
Brown Hawker (Male)
After a real lack of Birds and anything else really, i decide to go and look for some local plants instead. One i knew was at Westhay was Sundew, what i didn't realise was how much of it there was! The light was poor, but as they don't move too much, it made the photography a bit easier....
The second plant, was actually one i had never heard of, until someone put some pix on Twitter!!! There were quite a few plants in the ditches along the road on Tealham Moor. Glad i looked now, makes you realise what you know nothing about!
Its called Arrowhead, and you can see why.......
