Another beautiful sunny day which saw 4 Peacock butterflies out on the wing and also 8 Wall Lizards basking in the morning sun at St Andrew's Church.
Very few birds about but the main highlight was a Firecrest behind the huts at the cove and a pair of Pied Wagtails on the beach.
Here are few images:
In the grounds of St Andrew's Church was this Goldfinch in a buddleia.
Also in the grounds 8 Wall Lizards. This pair look as if they could possibly be mating.
Another soaking up the morning sun.
The lighter colour of this one would suggest a female.....
....and this one a male.
Though difficult to compare it to the other lizards this is a juvenile from last year.
Looking up to Pennsylvania Castle from the grounds of St Andrew's Church
On the beach a male Pied Wagtail......
....and his mate.
In the Hebe here 1 of 4 Peacock butterflies out in the sun today.
And overhead a Buzzard soaring.
Birds Recorded: Buzzard, Herring Gull, Wood Pigeon, 2 Meadow Pipit, 2 Pied Wagtail, Dunnock, Robin, Blackbird, 1 Firecrest, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Wren, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch and Goldfinch.
Also 8 Wall Lizards and 4 Peacock Butterflies.
A quick stop here to check the boat and I'm so glad I did with a Slavonian Grebe and Great Crested Grebe both in the Fleet. Just a shame I didn't have my camera to hand.
