This butterfly species is particularly numerous at the moment – typical were 20 seen by Gordon Avery at Sudmeadow yesterday evening. Bramble blossom is a definite attraction.

A Turtle Dove purring by the canal between the Wharf and the foot bridge. A Little Egret flew into the new north scrap at about 11.00am but became very difficult to see in the tall vegetation. The new ditches by the footpath to Deerhurst gave good views of a variety of dragonflies including Ruddy Darters and a Black-tailed Skimmer.
