A rare liverwort found at Dawlish Warrren. It's very tiny and I'd never have seen it without being shown it by the warden.

I miss having a garden and feeding the birds. Fortunately though there are lots of trees and shrubs outside the window of our flat and they are visited by a good variety of birds. It's nice to see the birds feeding on naturally occuring foods too. The Bullfinches are tucking into the leaf and flower buds and the Goldfinches are feeding on the alder catkins.
This one has an unusual colouring with yellow spots on the red face feathers.
