Tuesday at the Hoe,the kestrel chicks came into view for the first time
The first small skippers there were found in the afternoon
Wednesday took me first to Park Gate Down where the Musk Orchids are in bloom, they are comparatively small and greenish yellow ,I missed them on my first circuit but having got directions via mobile phone,what would we do without them?,found them on the second .
Another or perhaps the same individual was soon located and was followed on his patrol around his territory in the hope that it would settle long enough to get a picture,eventually a few shots were taken ,but he was continually on the move and led a running battle with a comma and anything else that came near.
It was such a perfect afternoon by now that I went the long way home via Capel to take in the view across to France where a perfect cumulo nimbus was building.
I hope they cut the vegetation in front of the terrace down soon or these views will be obscured completely..
