An identical walk to yesterday was had this afternoon, but it was very poor for bird sightings, just the odd BLACKCAP, WOODPECKER, and a couple of flyover Gull species, even all the common stuff was in short supply today.
So it was a good job I had some Butterflies to look at! I again visited the Buddlia over at the lake area, and again it was full of Peacocks, and Red Admirals, with a Painted Lady, a couple of Comma's and a few Gatekeepers and Meadow Browns. I couldn't resist going to have a look for some Purple Hairstreaks, I find them such a challenge to locate and photograph ( I am addicted to PH's!) Despite the blustery wind, I found 3 individuals in the Oak that held at least six yesterday, I love 'em!
Apart from the butterflies that was about it for today, apart from this Dragonfly
I took a few pics, and these two came out best. The wind kept blowing it out of focus! Now, I'm not too hot on Dragons, but I reckon this is a Common darter, an old female, it's started taking on some red colouring on the abdomen. There again I could be completely wrong!
