Rutland Water

Adventure weekend the the journey back home was to be with a stop off at Rutland water at the Lyndon Reserve for Osprey, todays weather was cloudy with wind, litle hope of more insect life today then. Down at the first hide the Ospreys could be seen, female at the nest with the male osprey close at hand. Other birds from here were Little Egret (5) Common Tern, and a surprise sight was a Little Tern . Sand Martin, Swallow and Swift were overhead.
Walking on top the other hide I found Chimney Sweeper Moths and Peacock Catapillars

A great weekend in the Northants area with plenty of species seen many more I haven’t logged here but a great weekend of adventure all round…and thanks to the many people I met
