I grabbed a quick visit in the afternoon after visiting a Peregrine site in the morning, weather in the afternoon was not ideal as it became rather cloudy, I had in mind to try and photograph some White Letter Hairstreaks.
|Black Tailed Skimmer|
First visit for over a month and was surprised how everything has changed and become overgrown, the viewing area is still holding a good head of water all over, but could possibly come up trumps for returning waders in late summer as it dries out.
|Lapwing, sadly no juveniles again|
|Green Sandpipers all|
|Even more of them|
|Essex Skipper, note dark antennae|
Species seen were-
White Letter Hairstreak – 1, Purple Hairstreak – 1 , Small Skippers – 28, Essex Skippers – 2, Ringlet 6, Meadow Browns – everywhere, Small Copper – 1, Peococks – 2, Small Tortoiseshell – 1, Small Whites everywhere, Silver Y – 1,
