Rock Pipit was the most numerous bird on the beach at Kimmeridge this afternoon, living up to its name among the eroding cliffs and cracked ledges of this geologists paradise.

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.
