Selsey Weekend

Spending the bank holiday weekend at Stubcroft Farm, near Selsey with the family in the mobile obs. Today I visited the new Medmerry RSPB Reserve and in the afternoon we visited East Head Sand Dune complex.

Here's a few pics from today. 

 Adult summer Mediterranean Gulls- stunners and seem pretty common in this area 

 Skylark- Medmerry was full of these. Also Yellowhammers and Corn Bunting. 
 Oystercatcher at Medmerry- also 5 LRP, Avocets, 2 Whimbrel, Common Sandpiper, Ringed Plover Lapwing and Redshank on the reserve. 
 Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet (I think). Also in the trap last night at the camp site were Treble Lines, Heart and Dart, Ruddy Streak and Shuttle-shaped Dart.
 Yellow Belle. At Medmerry. 
 Four-spot Chaser from Medmerry
 Brown Hare and Roe Deer (below) at Medmerry

 East Head Sand Dunes was stacked full of orchids- I'm no expert but I think they were Common Spotted and Southern Marsh orchids

Good times by the camp fire
