This afternoon was mostly cloudy, but in the short bursts of sunshine it felt very warm, again bird life was not co-operative, choosing to hide away, as they do at this time of year, lots of species are busy moulting. Only the SPARROWHAWK showed much of himself, and as I watched it, I saw a CORMORANT far in the distance behind it.
I walked through the tree nursery, and on to migrant alley, then on to the small pool of water where I last saw a Broad Bodied Chaser. The latter was again seen, also with Azure Blue Damselflies and a Ruddy Darter (I think!). Butterflies were much in evidence, with Red Admiral, Peacock, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, Skippers and Speckled woods all seen.
Later tonight I think i'll do another window watch, see if something turns up. I'll let you know tomorrow if it does.
This is the first Peacock Butterfly I've seen for some weeks, I was messing with the camera trying to get the background blurred, it seems to have worked, but I'm not sure it was worth all the hassle!
This one came out just as well (I think ) The sun went in as well
