Whilst I was at Yarner Woods earlier in the week looking for Pied Flycatchers I managed to photograph a few other birds as well.
Later in the day I went over to Emsworthy looking for Cuckoos and photographed a male Wheatear
Next day I went to Woodbury and Aylesbeare Commons in search of cuckoos – no joy…. try again in a couple of weeks
I found this female Blackcap on Aylesbeare Common
And at the Devon Wildlife Trust’s reserve Bystock on Woodbury Common I photographed this terrapin – wasn’t expecting that. No doubt some pet owner dumped it here when it got too big and it will now be munching its way through dragonfly and damselfly larvae – what a shame.
