Still lots to see at Strumpshaw!

Despite the usual Summer lull where birds are concerned, there's plenty at the Fen to occupy a genuine naturalist with a camera!

There were lots of excellent dragons today: Emperors, Norfolk, Brown & Southern Hawkers, Scarce Chasers, Common Darters and lots of Black-tailed Skimmers. In the new log pile on the riverside, three Grass Snakes were sunbathing as an Osprey flew over, while along the Woodland Trail several White Admirals were sipping bramble nectar! An Essex Skipper was new to the Fen for me....
