Ifton Meadow






While I wait for the water voles, it's nice to check out the birding action. These photos are from Ifton Meadow reserve, near St Martins: skylarks and linnets and meadow pipits showing well, and plenty of goldfinches and possibly a pair of pied flycatchers in the trees. The fungus is Elf Cup.
