One More Visit - Cerne Abbas

Marsh Fritillary

I thought I would do just one more visit to Cerne Abbas in pursuit of the Duke of Burgundy this year. I also wanted to check on the Grey Wagtail Pair by the river.












The young Grey Wagtails have flown the nest and were nowhere to be seen.
The male was taking a bath earlier in the day and the female was later observed catching flies to eat.
Hopefully they will return next year.

  1. Grey wagtail! On my last post, I tried to remember a grey bird that I saw beside a lake and you have given me the name. Thank you!

  2. I just looked it up. It was a white wagtail that was migrating through Georgia here in the USA. It was a wagtail, so this post did help me!

  4. Point de jeunes ? 😟😟 GĂ©nĂ©ralement ils dĂ©pendent encore des parents Ă  l'envol. C'est mauvais signe.
    Il y aura sans doute une deuxiÚme nichée Roy.
