Local Round-up...a bit of a catch-up - part two.

This is the second instalment of Dave Helliar's regular round up of local wildlife from the past couple of weeks. To kick things off a trip to the wonderful Quantock Hills in Somerset and some very nice summer migrants. Pity all of these have vanished (or are very scarce) from the Blackdown Hills...just can't work out why the Blackdowns have become so unattractive to so many species?
