Butterflies, Turtles and Orchids!

A super walk around Strumpshaw Fen before lunch was rewarded with terrific views of plenty of mint-fresh Swallowtails, several Brown Argus and a group of Bee Orchids. Plenty of dragonflies, too: dozens of Norfolk Hawkers, Hairies and Scarce Chasers.

The male Turtle Dove came to feed and stayed for an hour: much more pugnacious than last year, he drove off any Collared Dove that came too near!
