Dark Green Fritillaries at Horsey and a Hummer in the garden!

After a run to the Post Office, Linda and I decided on a drive out to Horsey Gap to search for Dark Green Frits.
In the event we didn't need to look very hard: we encountered 20 - 30 at the first patch of wild flowers (opposite the pill box!)

Other butterflies included Gatekeeper, Small Copper and Small Heath, though - strangely - no sign of any Graylings yet.

Other interesting fauna included Grey and Common Seals, Norfolk Hawker and lots of young Stonechats. As I was mowing the lawn later a mint-fresh Humming Bird Hawkmoth investigated the Buddleia: what a great year it's been for them!
