Bee Orchids

It’s that time of year again and the Bee Orchids are blooming, there are three just off the path, on the right hand side going up the tip and also in the usual place, right hand side of gate four in the airfield.
A couple of Grasshopper Warblers are singing again, managed a shot og the one on the top of the tip.
We caught sight of a Heron hiding in the long reeds, near the fishing pond, see photos.
The moth traps have been very poor this season but we did catch a Poplar Hawkmoth this morning.

Eider Ducks

The Eider appear to be having a poor year, on the way to check the Natterjack ponds, we spotted a group of 8 female and 1 male Eider duck on the channel but only one lonely duckling.
At the pond there were a group of 10 Smooth? newts, see photo of one.
Finally managed a shot of a Four Spot chaser this year and also a Common Blue butterfly.

Saturday 1st June

It’s that time of year again when the hairy caterpillars appear on the paths, there are plenty but not enough to attract the cuckoo this year; see photos of both the caterpillars and the moths.
