...was supposed to be the giveaway call given by this Richard's Pipit near Wyke Regis. I didn't hear it once as it turned out, but it showed well anyway, especially when stretching it's neck above the long grass in a field just west of the Bridging Camp. Probably my last Dorset tick of the year, so I was glad it stuck around for so long.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
