Mediterranean C - Richard Wright (Pink Floyd)

 Mediterranean C Link
Yesterday began with a few common and uninvited visitors to Slight Return II

out of the starboard porthole could first be seen a pair of
video
MALLARD
followed by 2 brace of female

PHEASANT
we always welcome starting a new day on the Wild Side!
The Reader will also notice that we are still 'behind bars'
uncertain whether these are meant to hold us in or keep us out.
From the
MOTH TRAPS

 PEBBLE PROMINENT
(new for the year)
 a somewhat early appearance of
PIED SHIELDBUG
video
which was found to be holding an Equity Card so.......
Additionally
BLACK SEXTON BEETLE
with
video
attendant
PARASITES
was also secured.
This next item fits neatly under the heading
NOT BEFORE TIME!
 MEDITERRANEAN GULL,
video
 sometimes up to as many as 2 dozen,
 have been a daily feature here at 
Parley Court Farm
video
 for the past 2 weeks or more.
 Not before yesterday had we been anywhere near capturing them on camera
video
 but even the most 'fleet of wing'
don't escape us - yeah alright!
 Now popping up all over the place and adding some much needed colour
 DANDILION
and
CELANDINE
while withing the Solar Panel Compound
PIED WAGTAIL
video
are once again prospecting the redundant cable drums as potential nest sites.
Some unusual aviation action in our airspace with the arrival of a
 AIRBUS A400M ATLAS
 Military Transport Aircraft
followed in close succession by something
 completely baffling.
Thanks to our Dear Friend Roy Norris
 Over to you Mister Norris
we can now inform you that it is a
PILATUS PC - 12/47
and while 'on the wing' this sequence of shots involving a pair of
 EARLY BUMBLEBEE
 (look-out, he's behind you!)
 copulating or whatever Insects do?
These images will be consigned to the Fluke File later!
Also at Bournemouth International Airport large building projects continue
 with this area, which could have been described as HEATH, now
being readied for the construction of yet another factory where among
other things Aircraft 'Black Box' Recorders are to be manufactured.
We'll keep you posted on progress - if that's the right word?
and while we had already announced what may have been the last
REDWINGas Nature often does, we were proved wrong yesterday. 
Otherwise, just a couple of video clips from the Irrigation Pond of
video
CANADA GEESE
and
video
video
COOT
which are both thought likely to breed there??
and a lone

MAGPIE
Some interesting (if you go for that sort of thing) ground cover to end.
AZOLLA
more commonly known as
FAIRY MOSS
among other vernacular names.
