Since I was in the Redbournbury area yesterday I paid a brief visit to the Gorhambury Estate. I was very pleased to locate no fewer than 5 Spotted Flycatchers distributed around the estate, including the usual pair at Mayne Farm, 1 half way up the drive towards Gorhambury House and 2 at Hill End Farm.
I bypassed Longdean on my return and stopped of in search of orchids on the north facing slope of the nature reserve. Not very many about but did get a few shots of Common Spotted Orchid, and the highlight a Pyramidal Orchid in full flower.
