Thrush and flowers

Very good sighting of a song thrush perched on one of the Orchard apple trees this morning. Also noticed the first of the Brown Knapweed in the Orchard plus Yarrow coming out near the Fauna Stones and some Marsh Willowherb in the Big Meadow.

Richard corrected my identification of a plant in my post of June 20th ‘Wild Flowers’ – it was not Common Bistort but its near kin Redshank. The wildflower photo collection has been amended.
