Mixed bag of North Coast goodies!

Martin was keen to add Red-veined Darter to his Norfolk list, so we headed back to Kelling, stopping first at Holt Lowes. No Keeled Skimmers today, but lots of Silver-washed Fritillaries and White Admirals as well as a good flush of Common Emerald Damselflies. Our favourite find, though, was a neat baby Slow Worm.

The Quags produced the desired Darters: different individuals from yesterday, these being a little paler and a lot more pecked! Coffee at Cley was enlivened by the sight of at least eight Spoonbills before we moved to Holt Country Park. In short order we located - and photographed - Silver-washed Frit and White Admiral, as well as a Four-spotted Chaser.
