Broadcroft Quarry Pool, The Cuttings and Mermaid Track

A slightly different route this afternoon to see what was about. There were a few Chiffchaffs down in Penn's Weare & The Cuttings, and a Blackcap in the bushes along the Mermaid Track.

Not too many butterflies about, and apart from a few Large & Small Whites, I did find a Small Heath by Broadcroft Quarry Pools

Here are a few images from today and a video of the Chiffchaff.
