Exmouth and Commons

Orcombe Point - early am - 1 whinchat (top photo), 1 hobby, 1 spotted flycatcher (all scarce on Orcombe) and 1 great northern diver.

Very little on the Commons this afternoon but every stonechat, aparently without exception, showing pretty much wholly white rumps with limited streaking on the uppertail coverts (note the lower bird is ringed). The moth pictured is an (early?) small grass emerald which is a very scarce and localised breeder.
