Night Heron at Cheltenham and Graylings on Brean Down

Sunday 6th - Monday 7th July 2014
Night Heron, Pittville Park, Cheltenham
After dipping it on back in June, I was pleased to catch up with the NIGHT HERON at Pittville Park this evening after it was re-found yesterday. It showed very well at times as it fished the lake edge.
I spent the afternoon at Brean yesterday with family and was chuffed to find two Graylings on Brean Down, towards the fort. It was quite breezy up there but the Graylings seem to manage to get back to the stony path whenever they flew up after appearing to be caught up in the breeze for a while, giving the impression they were about to be blown off the down never to be seen again!

There were also at least four Stonechats, the males sometimes launching into song-flight before dropping back down to a perch.
