A fine start to the day with the unmistakeable song of a Yellowhammer singing close to Dancing Ledge quickly followed by a family of Stonechats.
In the haymeadow surprising to see several stems of Common Broomrape. Normally as a parasite it’s fairly clear which is the host species. On this occasion due to the sheer diversity I wasn’t sure. Possibly one of the clovers or a Wild Carrot?
Musk Thistle, perhaps its the blue sky or the sea air but close up the flowers really are a shocking pink. In bud and covered in the early morning dew equally as attractive.
