Today we spent the day around the Brecks.

Great to see plenty of butterflies on the wing (Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock, Red Admiral, Comma, Brimstone, white sp.)

Small Tortoiseshell

Woodpecker habitat
At Santon Downham we heard a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker drumming, but Did Not See It

Pines, planes and sky
At Mayday Farm, we Did Not See a Goshawk (or much else)

Lakenheath Fen nature reserve
At Lakenheath Fen, we Did Not See a lot either. There are 70 pairs of Bearded Tits in there. We heard only two. Still, it was a pleasant walk, and we did see three Garganey, so mustn't grumble

Ladybird and Daisy

  1. Wonderful photographs. I especially like the one of Lakenworth Fen. The clouds look almost 3D

  2. Thanks! It was a lovely day.

  3. Very Nice. I didn't realise we still had the butterflies around here!

  4. Very nice butterfly. Haven't seen so many here yet.

  5. Excellent! Nice Butterfly!
