Bullcliffe Nature Reserve

Had a couple of hours wonder around a local nature reserve today near the Bretton area with a fellow pentaxian on insect watch and photo shoot, always breezy here at the Bullcliffe sit and is always hard to pin down insect species. There were no Dragonflies and Damselflies about a few Butterflies species encountered Peacock, Small White, Large White, Common Blue, Speckled Wood, and a Small Skipper along with a very nice Silver Y Moth. Shieldbugs were on my hit list for the day it took me a while but find one I did stuck in a bramble patch and hard to get to as well, a few photos followed before I left the Hairy (sloe) Sheildbug to go it’s own way once again. Rather a lot of crane flies were on hand as was a very nice Phantom Crane Fly which allowed me to take a few photos of it. Along with the crane flies a few Common Green Grasshoppers
