A few further shots from Skomer.  Lesser Black Backed Gull, Meadow Pipit, Razorbill, Seal, Wheatear.

Spent two nights on Skomer Island this week.  Weather rather good - much nicer than last year.  So coming up will be a series of posts of things on Skomer.  First up, Little Owls.  The pair had 4 chicks fledge apparently.  Very dificult to confirm this as there was only normally one visible.  Still, these are my shots of one of the juvenile Little Owls, plus a record shot of 3 of them together.

Got to Salisbury Cathedral for 05:30 this morning, hoping for some Peregrine food passing action.  No luck with that, but got some nice shots as the mist cleared.

 

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.
