It's a better picture on my phone than when posted sorry! Couldn't take another as it flew off.
It's a young nuthatch.

Here There & Everywhere
The last three days I've had to fend for myself.
Quite frankly, it's a miracle the whole place hasn't fallen apart. Must be because I decided to make the most of it and get out.
Been a mixed few days - a day in the field just chilling out, a day on the downs, a day on the marshes.
So here's some snaps, in no particular order...

A Wall Butterfly (particularly pleased with this - never seen one before and they're rare and endangered)...


Slow worms (the top one looking like it's pregnant)...


A silver winged fritillary...


A meadow grasshopper...


The day's camp...


A dark bush cricket...


A VERY heavily pregnant common lizard (it's that time of year for snakes and reptiles)...


And a buzzard...


Right, now I've got to go and make a chilli for dinner tonight or else I'll get told off...

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside...

a lone Ringed Plover


a flock of Oystercatchers (the full flock was over twice this size - I've never seen so many oystercatchers in one flock. Annoyingly, it was me who spooked them and put them in the air - otherwise, they'd have made a great image along the shore line))


and a Western Conifer Seed Bug
