Summer time and the living is easy...

That's because there are absolutely no birds to look at. But the the upside of that I suppose is that you can spend more time looking at beasties and plants, all of which certainly add a splash of colour to the place.

Today, saw my first Ringlet & Meadow Brown butterflies, as well as two or three Dark Green Fritillaries and a couple of Silver-Y moths. Not many dragonflies around yet although there were lots of Common Blue damselflies over one of the ponds.

Bird wise, the brood of 18 Shelducks seen last week seems to have re-deployed into an 11 and a 6, with one AWOL. Maybe the adults with the 18 were just baby-sitting?
