I had just 45 mins out this afternoon, I succumbed to the football ! Well, I can't miss an England match can I.
I went back over to the Tree Nursery and run off pool, the sun was burning hot, and hardly a thing was moving, but I found a couple of butterflies to photograph. Bird wise there, the only ones I heard and saw were a family of calling WRENS, a couple of scolding WHITETHROATS and overhead 4 SWIFTS, plus a family party of SWALLOWS.
On the run off pool, the family of MALLARD swam off into cover, but a MOORHEN with a second brood was quite bold, and allowed some pics. Not one Damselfly was seen - perhaps it was too hot for them ?
