Sorry I've not been around much over the last few months but family commitments have taken priority over my camera. I've been posting a few images over on Instagram, here's the best of 2017, so please check out my stream and follow me if you like. Best wishes for 2018

Yellowhammer
Emberiza citrinella

This beautiful bird is sadly on the Red list due to a recent decline in population. Fortunately I've seen them in good numbers on Dartmoor recently, a pleasure to hear their unmistakable song.

Common Blue ♂️
Polyommatus icarus

A very fresh, summer brood, male Common Blue on my local patch this week, the only one I could find. Hopefully more to come but the weather isn't helping at the moment with lots of rain and cold for August.

Marbled White
Melanargia galathea

Probably my favourite British Butterfly, I was lucky to find this one roosting on a Heath Spotted Orchid on my local patch.

Small Skipper
Thymelicus sylvestris

The Small Skipper can easily be mistaken for a Moth but is in fact a Butterfly in the family Hesperiidae. I've seen these in good numbers in my local meadow this year.

Pied Flycatcher ♂️
Ficedula hypoleuca

The Pied Flycatcher is a migrant bird to the UK, mainly appearing and breeding in woodlands during Spring and Summer. This lovely male appeared right in front of me whilst waiting in a hide at Lydford Gorge National Trust in West Devon.

Common Blue ♂️
Polyommatus icarus

The beautiful Common Blue butterfly is the most widespread blue butterfly in Britain and Ireland and is found in a variety of grassy habitats.

The brightly coloured males are conspicuous but females are more secretive. The colour of the upperwings of females varies from almost completely brown in southern England to predominantly blue in western Ireland and Scotland, but the colour is variable within local populations with some striking examples. Unlike Adonis and Chalkhill Blues, the dark veins do not extend into white fringes of wing margins.
