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.
