Talking of which it seems that most of the Small Skippers are going over as the majority today were Essex. Derek Lees paid a visit in the week and was kind enough to share some of his Insect photos including the one at the top of this posting.
Bird news - not a lot. Just three Oystercatcher today, at least three Common Tern and lots of calling Chiffchaff. Only a few weeks now though and the passage of small birds heading south should begin in earnest and I will be spending a fair bit of time watching the bushes around the pit mound as they were really productive last autumn.
Anyway - there must still be the odd good thing passing through and we do have that shoreline on the Mere for a change so keeping checking.
Have a good weekend all - Chaz
