Reptile Wrestle

I chanced upon a tussle this evening between a large Slow Worm and a Grass Snake. I'm not sure who was most surprised but needless to say these were the best shots I could get in the time as the snake scarpered followed by the Slow Worm. They were tangled in a hold almost "Jurassic" in miniature.

The Hawker had seen better days and has had it's wings clipped.

Garden Warbler

Very autumnal in Willington after the rain this morning. A good mix of warblers feeding on the blackberry bushes including Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Blackcap and this Garden Warbler.

Prawle Point

Not a cloud in the sky first thing this morning. Plenty of Cirl Buntings but they made themselves scarce as the day warmed. Foliage was alive with Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs.

Juvenile Little Owl

Finally managed to find a young one ! So they did breed successfully this year.
