The Jurassic Coast

.

The early morning sun backlit the bracken and gorse revealing the silver threads of spiders webs. I was in Dorset overlooking the expanse of Poole Harbour doing a bit of investigation for our tour next year to the Jurassic Coast. Having walked a little too far I rested on a mound of soft green moss. A Spotted Flycatcher had come down from the trees and was making the most of the insect life on the edge of the heath. As I watched it fly catching I heard a Dartford Warbler’s raping call close by. I waited. Curiosity getting the better of it the bird soon revealed itself atop the gorse almost too close for the camera.

    Key phrase: “I waited.” A fine example of fieldcraft paying off. Great shot.
