13th June
A few days ago I was at Sandscale Haws. It was a beautiful calm sunny day, excellent for butterflies. Lots of common blues and a few small heaths. Also day-flying moths, including the Mother Shipton and cinnabar..
Wild flowers are very varied now and much as I have seen at North Walney on past visits: wild pansies, various orchids and the lovely sea bindweed plus some little sand dune specialists such as sand catstail among the grasses.
Lots of whitethroat families, few sedge warblers and a male stonechat.
