Patch visit,cut short........
Earwig sp. Forficula auricularia.
Male Common Darter.
With the plan to visit the local patch at Worlaby again this aft,it was pretty much cut short after a torrential down pour,thankfully Mick was on hand to give me a lift back to my car,cheers mate.For the 2 and a half hours i was on site,i managed 2 Marsh Harrier(Ad female and Juv) which were watched hunting the pasture field and a distant Perg watched playing havoc with the local Wood Pigeons and Plover flocks down at the river.Decent numbers of Common Buzzards were again on the wing,with several birds giving superb views as they hunted and rode the thermals and 87 Pink-footed Geese passed over to the south.The only notable passerines were 3 Goldcrest and a single Bullfinch.Non bird sightings included at least 15 Common Darter,2 Migrant Hawker and a single Tree-damsel Bug.A Stoat was the only notable mammal sighting today.A decent few hours.
