Man Orchid and Damsleflies

Had planned going north for a couple of steamers but nodded off so missed me train so ended up at Ufton looking for Man Orchids with Bob finding at least four but they were already starting to go over. Greater Butterfly and Common-spotted Orchids have benefited from scrub clearance but surprisingly we couldn’t find any Bee Orchids, at least 2 Spotted Flycatcher and good numbers of Song Thrush seen. Only a few butterflies were on the wing but included our first Large Skipper of the year. After coffee and cake at the Just So we spent some time in the Bridge Nursery garden and meadow where there were many damselflies out. While photographing moths back at home Bob found a Lime Hawk-moth on the garden fence.
