I have recently been on a couple of walks around Wembury with my mum while the weather has been good and I quickly noticed the diverse amount of Wildlife around,including many birds mammals and especially insects. If I had another lense I would of tried to take more pictures of other things but being that my gear is mainly focused on macro equipment I thought I would make a small post about what I have seen so here we go I hope you like the following photos of Wembury wildlife!!
