All quiet on the western front...

Western front of Chard that is. The best I could russel up on patch today were 5 yellowhammers, 15 linnet and 2 whitethroat including this nice male who was determined to battle it out with a military helicopter circling overhead...

Whitethroat: R Harris

This morning my local colony of grey mining bees was still very much in hibernation but by lunchtime today, it was different story!

Andrena cineraria, Chard: Roger Harris

The entire left-hand bank as far as the tree in the distance is the colony. One of the biggest I've ever come across.
