Dark Green!

A long day in the field with Brian: not many birds about, but some decent insects and enough bits and pieces to keep us interested! First stop was Horsey Gap: lots of Stonechats and a family group of Lesser Whitethroats. Best of all, though, was a mint-fresh Dark Green Fritillary, that posed nicely among the marram!

A move to Yarmouth looking for Med Gulls was totally unproductive: no medium-sized gulls at all, just loads of Lesser Black-backs. The harbour mouth was no better and neither was Bure Park. We moved westwards to Filby and then Ranworth, where the only real birdy moment was a distant Osprey....
