The customary 'twitch photo'.
I was actually getting a photo of the guy who brought along a stool ( good idea which I may employ in future) not that he needed it in the end. The guy next to him looks a bit concerned, perhaps he may be worried that his likeness will appear on some blog or other for no apparent reason. He'd be right!! ;-)
On Sunday Bun and I drove down to Prawle Point in South Devon, for three reasons really, those being, Cirl Buntings, chance to see all of the House Finch, ( I didn't see its head when I saw it in Cornwall! :( ) and to actually see Prawle Point itself, neither of us having been there before.
A whole House Finch beautifully backlit!
Yesterday I nipped over to Radipole Lake to twitch another flower, a very rare form of Bee Orchid called atrofuscus. which has an entirely brown lip with no markings on it. I'm not entirely sure why some Bee Orchid mutations warrant the 'accolade' of becoming a named variety and others don't because they're within the excepted parameters for the nominate form. I won't be losing any sleep over it though!
Ophrys apifera Var. atrofuscus.
