Six-belted and Pyramidal

Little Ringed Plover and 2 adult Yellow-legged Gulls were at the pond this morning but the promise of warmer weather this morning wasn’t quite up to expectations with too much cloud cover but we still managed to lure with the help of pheromones a Six-belted Clearwing out which was a new site record for me at Stockton and it showed twice briefly but soon realised there wasn’t a female around and disappeared. Clearwings are a day flying moth but so elusive that you have little chance of seeing one without the use of pheromones. Had our first county Pyramidal Orchid of the year and our first Common Darter of the year with 2 observed.
