Yellow to Green

A couple of days ago I noticed at a far distance about a dozen Gulls on some recently cultivated land between Priors Farm and Rushey Common at least one of them was a Yellow-Legged Gull and yesterday driving between Clanfield and Lechlade a Wheatear was sat on an old tyre just off the road and today walking through the Warren at Gainfield Crossroads several Ravens were calling and on the wing later having reached The Hideaway on the Hatford road a Green Woodpecker was climbing a tree this was one of four that I saw as I walked through the Warren.

Bad Joke.

The water in Shellingford Quarry is rapidly disappearing in fact the rate of its going is worrying as one fears for the survival of its own mini-eco system. Nice and confiding Common Sandpiper along with Emperor Dragonfly and Black - Tailed Skimmer. Good article on Dragonflies in the Oxford Times supplement this last thursday featuring Stephen Burch.The Oxon Feather.
No Water-No Joke.

Common Blue and Brown Argos Butterflies


A brief visit to Baulking Fullers Earth Pit for Dragonflies proved fruitless due to a strong wind blowing.
