Friday 29th June

Yesterday we noticed very small beetles skimming around the pond on top of the water, Bob identified them as Whirligig beetles, an apt name. Today managed to get a shot of them, apparently they move through the water to disturb the surface to find food.
Came across a few Silver Y moths today, named after the Y on the wing, they are day flying and usually come a great numbers but with the weather this year we will have to wait and see.
This afternoon there were a flock of Black-tailed Godwits on the shingle spit in the long pond, normally we only see the odd one, so it was a pleasant surprise.
