A brief run around this morning (I had to be back to receive some parcels) turned out to be surprisingly productive, with excellent close views of some good butterflies, dragonflies and - courtesy of the thoughtful reserve staff - moths! Posting photos of a couple of the White Admirals I saw today is a little like rubbing salt in friends Sue and Peter's wounds, but that isn't the intention. honestly! Several people pointed out this pair of Common Emeralds as Willows: nothing I could say seemed to change their opinions!
Terrific to find a couple of tubby little Swallowtail caterpillars and a Kingfisher too!
