...and not much to show for it. Morden Bog, that is. A short cycle ride from home and a very long walk saw me scraping the barrel a bit for birds this afternoon - some fine male Stonechats, three singing Tree Pipits, and just a single Dartford were about the best of it. A Four-spotted Chaser was also freshly emerged - Hobby food normally, but not yet, as there weren't any. I learnt later that the 5 wandering White Storks had been seen over the area this morning, but I was on Portland at the time.

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.
