Down to the New Forest
With not much happening on the local scene I spent a couple of days in the New Forest area with a wildlife photographer friend of mine. We hoped to see a couple of birds he'd not seen before, namely a Dartford Warbler and a Redstart and we were lucky on both counts. The weather started fine but deteriorated on the second day limiting opportunities somewhat but we certainly saw plenty of wildlife.
A localised bird in the UK mostly being found on heathland in SOuthern England and parts of East Anglia. Populations can be devastated by heavy snow falls in long cold spells and heather fires on the heaths.
This carnivorous Sundew plant was in a boggy field and appears to have captured a small fly.
