A couple shots from our dip to somerset

This is the Meare Heath scrape where everybody was hoping that the Hudsonian Godwit would come back. Unfortunately no sign all day. Still a very good day out with lots of year ticks like Yellow Wagtail, Bittern, Hobby, Great White Egret also great to see a Green Winged Teal at Greylake. The Cetti Warbler is a bad shot but you can still see it's a bird and not a pile rocks like some other shot on this blog.

Nice to see Lapwing and Redshank at Greylake also this Mute Swan who's neck looks like a pipe cleaner

Found this flower at Thurlbere and thought Lords and Ladies but on second thoughts that it's not, so any ideas please, answers on a post card.


  1. Just got back from Llangorse, so don't laugh, is it the very early stage of hoary plantain, I said don't laugh. ME will know.

  2. Hi Mike on facebook they are saying Common Twayblade and what the hell are you sniffing old bean pmsl.

  3. Somebody doctored my Vicks inhaler, I knew I shouldn't have left it on the bar. :0)

  4. It,s ok Mike it does look at bit like a plantain .
