Loads of Large Red Damselflies aroudn the small ponds in the woods today.

An early start this morning on Salisbury Plain, looking for Whinchats.  Never had much success in previous years, but there seemed to be 2 or 3 around today.  Also, Corn Bunting, Yellowhammer, Kestrel, Skylark, Curlew.

Some macro (with flash) shots of flowers and things in the woods this morning.

Further to the last post...  Whilst up the tower of Salisbury Cathedral, I tried to photograph the adult Peregrines from eye level - a really unusual opportunity.  Someone had to be out on the ledge of the tower while the chicks were being ringed to prevent the adults from returning to the nest while the chicks were gone.  So my snaps below.  Have to say, I'm rather pleased with some of them.


Yesterday, I had the privilege of watching the ringing of the Salisbury Cathedral Peregrine chicks with the RSPB and the BTO.  An amazing experience.  Of course, I took some photos....
