Purbeck revisited

Wall Lizard, Dorset

After visiting family in Devon and Dorset at the weekend we spent a day on and near the Purbeck coast, where highlights included introduced Wall Lizards at Winspit Quarry and a good showing of Early Spider Orchids at Dancing Ledge.

During the day we also saw sparring Peregrines and numerous Stonechats, though migrant birds were few. Two Adders, a variety of butterflies including our first Small Copper of the year, and Black Oil Beetle all kept us on our toes.
