As today involved a seven hour train journey, there is little to say past the usual train birding. But there was one thing in St Austell railway station…The bridge over the rails was home to a nesting family of pied wagtails. While waiting for the train we could see the adults ducking in and out of a space under the bridge, obviously feeding young.
The siding were also audibly home to Blackcaps, Dunnocks and a Wren.
There was also this beautiful, if faded and battered, Painted Lady butterfly. I was a little worried that tweeting about a distressed painted lady outside a railway station could cause a stir, but thankfully not.
