Strumpshaw record Egret haul!

Having been told by BT that our broadband had a line fault which couldn't be repaired for two days, I grabbed a quick walk around a rainy Fen: needless to say, no snakes and few insects - just a female Southern Hawker patrolling the riverbank. One interesting moth (?) posed on a nettle leaf: any ideas?

By the reception centre the fennel plant held several Swallowtail caterpillars, leading to some speculation as to their (continental?) parentage.

Nothing from Fen Hide, but Tower Hide produced eleven +1 Little Egrets, a Common Sandpiper, a Kingfisher and a Water Rail.

Couldn't resist another photo of the dozey Little Owl: what a cutey!
