Pond and insects
Having looked at the pond briefly between clearing mine and Dave’s traps down and finding a summer plumage Sanderling and female Shelduck the rest of the day was spent down south visiting a number of sites mainly for insects managing :-17 species of butterfly including first of the year Wood White, Adonis Blue and Duke of Burgundy, 6 species of dragonfly including Downy Emerald and 7 species of moth with the best being my first Yellow Belle. Birds were not forgotten with Tree Pipit, Wood Lark, Red Kite and Hobby noted. Photos to follow but I have taken hundreds so need sorting when I get time.
